Training Testimonials

Dougy Center has been a consistent support for our organization and we are so appreciative of your model that has been so easy to apply to our community. Thank you for sharing your wisdom and resources especially as we grow.

Once I was trained and headed back to my own home State, I started my own program. On our very first group night, with 4 kids, in 2009 is when I was delighted to see that yes, the model did indeed work! Ten years later, it still gives me delight to see what our special place has given to bereaved kids, all thanks to Dougy Center.
