Share Hope program prepares volunteers through seminar

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A Share Hope Volunteer Training Seminar took place at the Women's Center of the NEA Baptist Hospital in Jonesboro Wednesday.

The program trains professional staff and volunteers to deal with parents who have lost a child through pregnancy, stillbirth or the first few months of life.

Director of fundraising and events, Kim Provost, said instructional seminars like these are important for people who deal with bereaved parents to attend.

"All tragedies are very hard to deal with, but when you loose an infant you're dealing with the loss of hopes and dreams you had for that child," Provost said.

So far, around 50 people have signed up for the training sessions.

For those interested in volunteering with this organization, additional sessions will take place Thursday, February 24th, at 7:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.
