This year, we are raising money for the The Dr. Jay Children’s Grief Centre in honour of an FFCA parent, Dave Sheffe, who passed away tragically only a few weeks ago. Dave, Heather, Ella and Marlowe Sheffe have been part of the FFCA community for over 4 years and it is our honour to raise money in Dave's memory for a cause that he was connected to professionally and passionate about.
The Dr. Jay Children's Grief Centre is a unique organization that bridges a critical gap in support for children, youth and families living with terminal illness, traumatic loss and grief. The Centre is one of the only places in Canada that provides free counselling and specialized programming to children, youth and families as they navigate the unimaginably difficult journey of living with grief. The Centre’s unique programs have been developed to meet the diverse needs of grieving clients (0-21 yrs) and to support, educate and empower families to learn to live with loss and grief in a way that makes life feel manageable and meaningful again.
The Dr. Jay Children’s Grief Centre provides this vital support to children, youth and families without government funding and their programs are only made possible with donor support.
A Message from DJCGC:
For the past 3 years, the Centre’s Camp Erin Toronto program has been running out of Camp Manitou, which is where the Centre staff and volunteers first met Dave Sheffe. Dave’s kind, generous and engaging spirit made him a pleasure to work with and will be deeply missed by the Dr. Jay Children’s Grief Centre/Camp Erin Toronto communities.
