Flutterbye is a support program created by the Community Nurses, Inc., to help children cope with the loss of a loved one.
The program reaches out to grades kindergarten through 12th grade. The support program meets monthly for meetings and yearly for a day camp. Because of a grant awarded by Women Who Care, the program will be extended to a two-day camp in the summer of 2012.
â€śThe Women Who Care awarded us a $2,500 grant to extend our camp to two days,â€ť said Joanne Straub, social worker and bereavement coordinator for Community Nurses, Inc. Home Health and Hospice. â€śNow with two days, we will be able to do more problem solving.â€ť
