Mission: 

Charlie brown's is a kid's support group that's all about good grief. Here group leaders and supportive volunteers help children ages 3-18 express the sadness, guilt, fear and anger that are natural reactions to the death of a parent. They also guide the children toward acceptance of the death, helping them capture and preserve memories of their parents through discussion, art, writing and storytelling. A parent's support group too.
