Valdosta - Hospice of South Georgia has been awarded $67,000 for grief counseling services.

The "Promoting Safe and Stables Families Grant" comes from the Department of Family and Children Services Foster Care Unit and provides hospice grief counseling for children with a terminally ill family member. It also helps with funding for "Camp Good Mourning," a bereavement camp for these children.

"The goal of the grant is to keep the home stable for children who are going through the sickness or death of a family member," said Molly Porter, Grief Counselor. "We hope our services will keep these children from being involved in at risk behavior, such as drugs or violence."

The "Promoting Safe and Stable Families" grant is the first ever awarded to Hospice of South Georgia.
