The mission of Kaleidoscope is to provide peer support in a safe and understanding environment for children and their families who are grieving the death of a loved one.
A Bit of Background
Established in March of 2006, Kaleidoscope offers grief support to children and families who have experienced the loss of a loved one. Located in Norman, Oklahoma, home to over 100,000 full-time residents, and less than ten miles south of Oklahoma City, a metropolitan area boasting more than 1.2 million residents, Kaleidoscope is uniquely situated to meet an identified need in its community. As the sole provider of grief support services to children in the Norman area, Kaleidoscope was established by founder, Suzie Price, after discussions with local teachers, clergy and school administrators who highlighted a lack of support services available for these grieving children and their families.
The groups are free, on-going and meet every other week.
There are groups for the children’s parents or family members that meet at the same time as the children’s group.
Kaleidoscope is a wonderful place for children to process their grief with others.
