A Center for Grieving Children, Adolescents and Their Families
The Highmark Caring Place champions the cause of grieving children by creating awareness of their needs, providing programs for them and their families and empowering the community to effectively support them. The first Caring Place facility opened in Pittsburgh in 1997. Since then, the program has expanded across Pennsylvania, with additional facilities in Erie, near Harrisburg and in Warrendale. Thousands of community members are helped by the Caring Place each year at no cost through peer support group, education, consultation and referral services.
“In Lawrenceville, there is a sense of community like no other. People volunteer to clean up and plant gardens, and everyone has each other’s back.”
