Leader in Me at Home

As we continue to nurture the growth and development of our children, it's crucial to recognize the importance of leadership roles within the family unit. At home, our children have the opportunity to cultivate essential leadership skills that will serve them throughout their lives.

The Leader in Me program encourages us to foster leadership qualities in our children, helping them become confident, responsible, and proactive individuals. By assigning them roles and responsibilities within the household, we not only teach them valuable life skills but also instill a sense of ownership and pride in their contributions.

Whether it's leading a household meeting, managing chores, or mentoring younger siblings, every task provides an opportunity for our children to practice leadership in a safe and supportive environment. Through these experiences, they learn to communicate effectively, make decisions, and collaborate with others—skills that are essential for success in school, work, and beyond.

Together, let's embrace the journey of developing leaders at home and watch as our children grow into capable and compassionate individuals who positively impact their communities.

Bo's Place Grief Support Information

Our Family Groups and How to Join

We often get calls with questions about our services, so this month we are providing information on our Family group and how to join.

For families, Bo's Place offers free grief support groups in English and Spanish for families with children ages 3 -18 (still in high school) who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling, or person significant to their family. Children and teens are placed in groups with others their own age or grade level, while parents and guardians meet in separate groups with other adults. It is in these groups that the "magic" of Bo's Place happens. Children share their thoughts and feelings about the death of their person through conversations, expressive arts, and activities.

Families have the following options:

9-week Family Group: Families that prefer in-person groups generally start in this group that meets once a week for 9 weeks on Tuesdays (English and Spanish) or Thursdays (English), from 6:15 p.m. – 8:15 p.m.

8-week online Family Group: Families that prefer an online group meet on Zoom once a week for eight weeks. Adults in the family meet on Mondays from 7:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. and children and teens meet on Tuesdays from 7:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

Ongoing Group: Families who have completed a 9-week or Online Family Group and would like additional support may join an in-person Ongoing Group that meets twice a month on Mondays, 6:15 p.m. – 8:15 p.m. (English) or Saturdays, 9:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. (Spanish). A family may attend for as long as they find the program helpful.

Little Friends: Preschool aged children (ages 3-5) and their parents/guardians join this in-person group that meets once week for 6 weeks on Wednesdays from 3:30 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Bo’s Place support groups are overseen by Bo’s Place licensed mental health professionals and led by trained volunteer facilitators. Before starting a group, adults (for families the parent or legal guardian) must complete a registration process. The first step is to call Bo’s Place and speak with a member of our program staff for a phone intake. The phone intake usually takes about 20 to 30 minutes. After this step, there is a short registration form to complete and an orientation before being assigned to a group.

All of our groups are for residents of the greater Houston area which consists of the following nine counties: Austin, Brazoria, Chambers, Fort Bend, Galveston, Harris, Liberty, Montgomery and Waller. If you would like to join one of our grief support groups, please call Bo’s Place at 713-942-8339 during our business hours: Monday – Thursday 8:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. and Friday 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
