PENDLETON — People interested in working with children that are processing the death of a loved one are invited to participate in a facilitator training at Cason’s Place.

A support center for grieving children, teens and families, Cason’s Place was created in memory of Cason Terjeson. The 16-year-old died during a farming accident in Umatilla County in 2007. The teen’s family found grief support at the Dougy Center in Portland. Based on their experience, they spearheaded efforts to create something similar in Umatilla County.

The training is Saturday at 9 a.m. at 1416 S.E. Court Ave., Pendleton. There is no fee. For more information, contact Jon Nitz at jon.loss12@gmail.com or visit www.casonsplace.org.
