Parenting After Loss Playdate

In March 2016, Empty Arms Bereavement Support began a new partnership with the Northampton Parents Center. The Northampton Parent Center is a drop in play space four mornings a week in downtown Northampton. Our new partnership will increase support and connection for our families with living children, and provide a much needed space for families to connect with each other outside of support groups and events. 

WHEN: On the first and third Wednesday of each month, Carol and/or Beth will be at the Parents Center from 9:30 am - 11:30 am. We'll be there to talk, to share a cup of coffee, and to foster connections with other families who have experienced loss. Even if you've never accessed our services before, this is an opportunity to connect. 

WHERE: The Northampton Parents Center is located in the lower level of Edwards Church at the corner of State and Main Streets in Northampton. Please use the back door and public parking. 

WHAT: Admission is free. The Northampton Parents Center is open mid September to late May, and generally follows the Northampton Public School calendar for vacations and holidays.

Thank you to Swansea at the Parents Center for being so excited about this partnership, and envisioning the many families we can serve together! If you have any questions, please contact us at
