  • 14. MAKING THE DIFFERENCE IN YOUR COMMUNITY This year’s conference will feature a wish list drive for Tides and Centre County Office of Aging and Six Centre County Senior Centers. Donations made on Monday, March 29 will go to Tides and donations made on Tuesday, March 30 will go to the Centre County Office of Aging and Six Centre County Senior Centers. One out of twenty children will lose a parent before they graduate from high school. Many more will lose a sibling, grandparent, or friend. Children’s grief is like a fierce storm at sea, bringing devastation that lasts long after the funeral and burial are over. Many children struggle to come to terms with their grief for years after the death. The Tides Program was begun in 2003 to help those children in Centre, Mifflin, and Huntingdon Counties of Pennsylvania. Tides is a grief support program for children, adolescents, and their families who have experienced the death of a loved one. There is no cost to attend Tides which meets the first and third Thursdays of each month (September–May) at Mt. Nittany Middle School. Tides has touched merely 7.5% of the estimated 2,700 in the thirty mile radius from State College who have experienced the loss of a parent alone. These numbers indicate that there are many more families who could benefit from our social service, grief support, and outreach programs. We offer groups for children and teens, ages pre-school to 18, and their families who are grieving the death of a sibling, parent, or other significant person in their lives. The goal of Tides is to be a safe place with safe people where children, adolescents, and their families can know they are not alone in their grief; share their feelings, memories, and experiences in an atmosphere of non-judgmental acceptance; see that what they are going through is normal; know that hope and healing are possible; have fun with peers and as a family; and last but certainly not least make quality relationships. The activities at Tides are designed to be developmentally appropriate for each age group and also designed to give the children choices about how to express their feelings. For example, children may be asked to write in a journal about an activity they like to do with the deceased, such as going shopping or playing ball. When group members are sharing their activities, children are not forced to share.
