Peer Contact Training
Peer contacts are critical to providing grief support to newly bereaved families.  In order to meet the needs of those of you who are interested in learning more about becoming a peer contact, numerous trainings are being offered.  After completing a workshop on the responsibilities and expectations of the peer contact program, participants then decide whether or not they would like to be a volunteer peer contact.  Peer Contacts can be parents, foster parents, grandparents, childcare provider, or other relative that has experienced a sleep related infant death.

There is no cost to attend a peer contact session.  Lunch will be provided and mileage can be reimbursed. 

If you are interested in becoming a peer contact, please contact the office by calling 866-480-4741 or by email at
