In recent years, GWP members have had the opportunity to hear from experts regarding the life-long effects of childhood trauma and the value of incorporating models of trauma-informed care.

Join GWP for further exploration into this topic as we examine a bereavement camp program model with our visiting colleague organization, The Moyer Foundation.   We will begin with a screening of the HBO documentary short film, One Last Hug, which, set at one of The Moyer Foundation’s camps, illuminates the effects of death and grief on children.

Following the screening, Associate Director of the Richard King Mellon Foundation, Sam Reiman, will introduce Karen Gallagher, Director of Development & Communications for The Moyer Foundation.  Karen will discuss The Moyer Foundation’s program model for each camp and the impacts to date based on formative evaluation studies.  In addition, she will discuss working with the local Camp Erin partner, Good Samaritan Hospice and how the programs have been scaled nationally.

This will be a brown-bag meeting, so feel free to bring your lunch.  GWP will provide drinks and snacks.
