Our Mission

  • Counseling - Individual / Family / Group
  • Education - Other
  • Resource Center
  • Support Groups - Other


For children and adults who have experienced the death of a loved one.


Full Circle was established as a comprehensive grief resource center for children and their families to find a variety of creative ways to express their grief, such as art, writing, play, crafting, photography, and music. Often, children do not have the language or communication skills to explain how they are feelings when experiencing grief.

Creative arts help children convey their feelings of loss and explore their thoughts and beliefs. Also, because violent or traumatic experiences regularly get recorded in the mind as images or pictures, art can help children recount details of a traumatic loss more effectively than just talking.
