Friends Way

Feliz Navidude, December 13 2019

The PGMC is proud to announce that the recipient of our 2019 holiday benefit concert is FRIENDS WAY (Families Reaching Into Each New Day). Friends Way is the only family bereavement center in Rhode Island, serving families throughout Southeastern New England. Staffed with highly qualified mental health care professionals and extensively trained community volunteers, they provide peer support to children and their families in a safe and nurturing environment. Their services are free to all families, with 100% of their program funded through fundraising activities and community support.

They give back to the community through the provision of training programs, community outreach and crisis intervention outreach for grieving families. Conducting more than 150 presentations and in-service training workshops about guiding children through their loss and grief, they have become a proven resource for Rhode Island agencies that seek bereavement services for their community members. The PGMC feels an obligation to respect, uplift, and support the work Friends Way does for the children of RI, many of whom could be the future leaders of our community. Please help us help them by making plans to attend our holiday concert in December.
