Miami, FL (PRWEB) October 15, 2015
eCondolence.com’s vast learning center resources and planning tools will complement the CBC’s long-term peer support groups. eCondolence.com will help address the immediate need, while the Children’s Bereavement Center provides free Peer Support Groups for children, young adults, and adult caregivers after the death of a loved one. “We are excited about our partnership with the Children’s Bereavement Center,” says Michael Schimmel, CEO and founder of eCondolence.com, “they are a dedicated organization that shares our passion for helping those in need, as well as our strong connection to the community in South Florida.”
The Children’s Bereavement Center specializes in long-term grief support for children and families, and will provide this expertise and knowledge to help expand the learning center at eCondolence.com. “Unfortunately, the loss of a loved one is a common occurrence for children," remarked Mindy Cassel, CEO and Co-Founder of the CBC. "It’s estimated that 1 in 5 school aged children experiences the death of a family member or friend. Learning to adjust to life, not 'get over it', can make the experience more acceptable. Finding support in others often helps, especially for children. The CBC is one place that allows them to share, connect, and feel part of a community after loss.”
For eCondolence.com, this partnership signifies its expanding network of both nonprofit and corporate partner organizations who are seeking qualified resources on grief, loss, and sympathy.
A subsidiary of S2 Brands, Inc., eCondolence.com provides an easy-to-use, efficient resource to help family members, friends, colleagues and acquaintances cope with the loss of a loved one. The site offers information and guidance about appropriate items to send and words to express condolences in a respectable and understanding way.
About the Children’s Bereavement Center
Founded in 1999 by two psychologists, Dr. Carol Berns and Dr. Mindy Cassel, the CBC was created to fill a void in bereavement services for children and families. It is the only ongoing, comprehensive bereavement center providing free Peer Support Groups to grieving children and their families in South Florida. The CBC’s mission is to help children, young adults, and their families adjust to life after the loss of a loved one within a supportive community of their peers, and to promote healthful grief, healing and growth. The CBC currently holds 98 groups per month throughout Miami-Dade and Broward counties and is serving over 1,300 active participants. The CBC does not engage in clinical therapy, instead utilizes a peer support group model to enhance adjustment after a death.
