Kate’s Club to recognize members and participants at May 2 event

BRUNSWICK, Ga. – April 22, 2024 – Kate’s Club, a grief support organization that has served Glynn County since 2022, will host an awards ceremony to celebrate children who are grieving. The event will be held at the Boys & Girls Club’s Elizabeth F. Correll Teen Center on May 2, 2024, starting at 6 p.m.

The event is open to children and teens who participated this year in Kate’s Club programs, which are hosted in and out of schools, as well as any potential participants.

Kate’s Club kicked off in Glynn County with school groups to provide group-based, recreational grief support to students who are grieving the death of a parent, sibling, caregiver, or someone important to them. The in-school model allows Kate’s Club to serve children on campus and during the school day, which eases barriers like time and transportation.

The organization also hosts out-of-school grief support services for Brunswick families on weeknights and weekends, giving children and families to connect with others experiencing grief.

“It was important to me to integrate Kate’s Club into the Glynn County community, because of the number of grieving children and families who need grief services,” said Alneata Kemp, Coastal Georgia Regional Program Coordinator. “The support of the community has been amazing, and many children now understand that it really is okay to grieve.”

In the U.S., 1 in 12 children experiences the death of a parent, sibling or caregiver by age 18. The number increases to 1 in 10 in Glynn County. Given these numbers, Kate’s Club collaborated with many local organizations to expand to the county.

“Kate’s Club came down here at the exact right time for us,” said a Kate’s Club parent who expressed difficulty finding recreational grief support that interested her children after their father died.

The organization also serves young adults ages 18 to 30 throughout the U.S. and Canada. Kate’s Club plans to bring more programming to Brunswick by the end of 2024. For more information, contact



Kate’s Club empowers children and teens, their families, and young adults facing life after the death of a parent, sibling, caregiver or someone important to them. The organization builds healing communities through recreational and therapeutic group programs, education and advocacy. Since its founding in metro Atlanta in 2003, Kate’s Club has served thousands of individuals who are grieving, through both direct service and outreach programs. For more information, visit
