Grief Support

L.Y.G.H.T. – Peer Grief Support Group

The Listening and Led by Youth in Foster Care: Grief, Hope, and Transitions (L.Y.G.H.T.) program is a peer grief support group influenced by and developed for youth in foster care.

The L.Y.G.H.T. program supports, honors, and listens to grieving youth in foster care. This grief-informed and trauma-informed intervention is facilitated by supportive adults who acknowledge the challenges and transitions youth experience while navigating the foster care system. L.Y.G.H.T. groups are a safe space for community, connection, and relatedness among youth whom the foster care system has touched.

L.Y.G.H.T. groups are held in North Charleston and Berkeley County for young adults ages 17 to 23 and teens ages 12 to 16.

If you are interested in learning more about the L.Y.G.H.T. program or want to speak to someone about becoming a L.Y.G.H.T. Facilitator, please contact Juliette Martinez, SC L.Y.G.H.T. Statewide Coordinator at


Any youth that has been touched by the foster care system and is between the ages of 12 and 16 or 17 and 23.
