About The Children’s Bereavement Center of South Texas (CBCST)
The Children’s Bereavement Center of South Texas strives to foster healing for grieving youth, their families and the community through peer grief support programs, counseling, training, education and outreach. At the CBCST it is our belief that each person’s journey through grief is unique and therefore deserving of a distinct approach to healing. Rooted in this philosophy, our staff and volunteers are trained to utilize a multitude of expressive therapeutic techniques that employ the use of art, drama, writing, music, movement and dance to help process feelings of grief and, ultimately, to help prevent unhealthy behaviors and dysfunctional outcomes for grieving children.

The CBCST is truly a volunteer-driven organization.  Wherever your time and talents may be, there is a match for you to help link hearts, mend spirits and transform lives. For more information on volunteer opportunities, please contact Julia Anderson, Director of Volunteer Services, by calling 210-736-4847 ext. 224 or via email at Ongoing donations can be made throughout the year at
