About the Program
Adolescents experience loss in a number of ways – the divorce of parents, the death of a sibling, parent or friend, or moving from a familiar house, neighborhood or school to a new environment. The experiences can be painful. Lost and Found helps address questions, concerns and brings to the forefront ways to help cope with loss and the burdens it brings.
