The 2017 Parents and Siblings Weekend Retreat will focus on the unique issues that come with grieving the death of an adult child or sibling, how the death impacts family relationships and traditions, and the positive effects of self-care after loss.

2017 Parents and Siblings Weekend Retreat

The National Fallen Firefighters Foundation’s Parents and Siblings Retreat is open to parents and siblings of fallen firefighters honored at the National Memorial in Emmitsburg, Maryland.

We have a great program planned for parents and siblings of fallen firefighters from across the country to engage in activities that will strengthen your abilities to heal.

The 2017 Parents and Siblings Weekend Retreat will begin with a welcome reception on Thursday, November 2. Friday and Saturday will include engaging workshops and open discussions; there will be time for self-care and plenty of opportunities to make lasting friendships with others who understand.
