The Oregonian: Dougy Center helps grieving children experience pain and loss in their own way
A circular hallway connects several playrooms at Dougy Center, the Southeast Portland nonprofit that’s provided support groups for grieving children and families for 40 years.

A third features a padded “volcano room,” where children with explosive feelings can punch the walls and jump and throw things safely.View Press Details
