Portraits of Courage Has a New Look for 2021
You can make an impact for kids and families who are grieving during Dougy Center's month-long Portraits of Courage Campaign. This year, we wanted to create something more in alignment with Covid safety protocols, including a series of smaller events and online connections.

With the theme, “Making Memories and Remembering Loved Ones,” the Portraits of Courage campaign will launch on October 18, 2021. Throughout the month, you are invited to show your support and learn more about Dougy Center's important work through fundraising incentives and peer-to-peer challenges.

The event culminates on National Children's Grief Awareness Day, November 18, 2021, with a virtual celebration open to everyone.

Stay tuned for more details coming soon!
Is Someone Grieving at Your School?
As students return to school across the country, some in-person and some virtual, many may have a mix of excitement and uncertainty. Heading to school with grief is never easy and it's even more challenging in the current context of the ongoing pandemic.
