Dougy Center was founded 40 years ago right here in Portland as a safe place and community providing grief support for children, teens, young adults and their families. They also provide adult support groups for parents and caregivers.
Executive Director of Dougy Center, Brennen Wood, came to Dougy Center when she was 12 and her mom died. Her heart and her story resonate with the families who come to Dougy Center. She knows from experience that Dougy Center is a place where kids can grieve in their own time, in their own way.
