3/15/2022 According to the 2020 Childhood Bereavement Estimation Model (CBEM), in Cambria County, one in 12 children will experience the death of a parent by age 18. That equates to 2,220 children. Out of 67 Pennsylvania counties, Cambria County has the second highest rate of children who will lose a parent by age 18. Behind this staggering statistic are real children who are struggling with difficult emotions like loneliness, fear, and anger. At the Healing Patch Children’s Grief Program, grieving children learn they are not alone and that hope and healing are possible. Learn about how to get involved as a volunteer at an Open House on Mon., April 11 from either 12-1 p.m. or 6-7 p.m. at the Cambria Healing Patch, 118 Ebony Rd., Ebensburg.
