Losing a mother or father, brother or sister, is hard for grownups. Think how hard that is for someone who is five, nine, or 15 years old. For a decade, Kate’s Club in Midtown has helped some 600 children and teens from across the metro area deal with the grief that follows the death of a parent or sibling. The organization serves kids through a number of ways including fun outings, support services and camp. Building a compassionate and empowering community is the ultimate goal, says Kate Atwood, the organization’s founder who was 12 when her mother died from a prolonged battle with cancer. In May, the Georgia Center for Nonprofits will honor the work of Kate’s Club, which relies on donations so it can offer kids its services for free.
