Debra Brook and the Kate's Club community hard at work

Debra Brook was looking for a change in her professional life. Having spent 15 years as a recreational therapist she knew that the time had come to move on and find a new challenge. Having a connection to Kate’s Club through one of its employees at the time, Debra decided to try working with children in a new capacity. She liked the idea of the change of pace from the world she was so used to - to this new environment where she could continue to learn about grief and bereavement in new ways. This also allowed her to develop new ways to help families work through such an emotionally difficult time in their lives. Although Debra herself had not experienced such a loss, she could respect and learn from the children and adults who had. As the Program and Volunteer Manager, Kate’s Club is important to Debra because it represents the idea of community. She loves that rather than being your typical mental health facility, the club is a gathering place where children choose to come and be a part of something special. They can find common ground with the other members. Rather than being forced to participate, these bereaved children want to have positive and supportive interactions with a free grief support group with grief specialists, and online grief counseling at a center for grieving children. Kate's Club also provides free grief support to bereaved children's parents and caregivers.

Would you like to share your story? Please get in touch with Kate's Club! KC has free grief support with grief resources, grief counseling resources, grief training, and volunteer work in Atlanta and surrounding places in Georgia. Kate's Club is a growing nonprofit in Atlanta with grief specialists for kids and young adults going through bereavement. Our goal is to make a world where it is okay to grieve.
