Navigating grief and trauma with practical tools and resources
Why consider volunteering?
There is a growing body of research that indicates volunteering provides mental, physical, and social benefits to all individuals. Those whose lives are being transformed by grief and trauma may choose to channel their pain and struggle into a process of helping others who are on the same journey; take a break from their own pain by assisting with people with a completely different set of life circumstances; or organize a group, class, foundation, or nonprofit organization geared toward bettering the world in some way. Volunteering time, energy, resources, knowledge, and life experience help both the giver and receiver.
