At Carson’s Village, we know that each person’s grief journey is unique and that different things help different people. That’s why we created our Peer to Peer (P2P) program, where you can regularly speak with someone in the community who has also experienced a similar loss.
Our peer supporters, or “Villagers”, as we call them, are volunteers who participate in 20 hours of training and monthly meetings through Carson’s Village so that they can be as supportive as possible to their peers. We match our Villagers and Peers with intention, hoping to help form relationships that will be as meaningful as possible.
Those who utilize Carson’s Village services may request a Villager at any point during their work with us, and must be 18+ to participate. If you’d like to know more about being matched with a Villager, reach out to your Advocate or Contact Us
If you’re interested in volunteering to become a Villager, please read more about the P2P program below.
Carson’s Villagers play a special role in serving our community. They act as peer supporters to those who are actively grieving the loss of a loved one. Villagers meet regularly with their peers to be an additional layer of care for Carson’s Village clients.
Becoming a Villager is a commitment, and we believe that the work that is put into becoming a Villager is returned in the meaning that is found from the peer connection.
