Seasons Centre is privileged to have been able to assist our families on their journey of healing. Below are some comments of people who have visited Seasons Centre:
We are so grateful for the Season’s Centre and their wonderful staff. Our son was angry and acting out against his family in his frustrations. The activities at the Seasons Centre allowed him to express his feelings and within the first few sessions we were noticing improvement. His loving and joyful personality is returning. I want to thank the staff and volunteers that work tirelessly to help these children work out their grief in a positive way. ~ K.L.
- I like going to the center because I feel like I belong. All the kids there have also had a parent die. My dad died in an accident. I feel like I can’t talk about him with most people I know. But at the center when you talk about stuff, like how you feel or what you did with him, the kids there get it.
- The buddies at the center are really fun. They play lots of games with us and sometimes we just hang out and talk. It makes me feel safe. I also like the crafts and activities we do; especially the ones that make me think happy things about my dad.
- I’m forever grateful. The staff and services at Seasons Centre have been a true blessing. When my two boys lost their mother, I knew I was ill-equipped to deal with their grief on my own. Having the Seasons Centre to turn to, was a god-send. It’s a tremendous comfort knowing my sons can work through all the aspects of their grief in a supportive, loving, and well-structured program like yours. Please accept my sincere thanks. ~ J.A.
- My dad died when I was 6 years old. One day he was there, and then he was gone. I couldn’t stop crying everyday and had nightmares almost every night that woke up everyone in the house. I tried to talk to my friends about how I was feeling and how much it hurt, and they tried to help, but usually they didn’t know what to say. Most of the time I ended up getting very mad at them because no matter what they said, how could they get it? All of them still had their parents. Even the ones who were divorced, they could still talk to their dads – I couldn’t. I started coming to Seasons Center after he died. It’s the best place for me to talk about how I feel. Everyone there has had someone they love die. I don’t need to explain things in detail which makes me feel worse. When I talk there the kids get how I feel. Sometimes we even make up new words for weird feelings that we get. Sappy – Sad and Happy. It has been more than three years since I have been going to the center and I cry as much over Dad. I still have problems being alone, or being away from my family. It is getting better now, I can go on sleepovers. But still, when ever I’m happy and really having fun, sometimes I feel sad at the same time. I have learnt at the center that this is how I miss my Dad, I’m not weird, its just part of me and that’s okay.
