What we're about

We are a humanist, non-theistic, educational, philosophical and charitable organization. We are inspired by the ideal that the supreme aim of human life is to create a more just, equitable, diverse, sustainable, and compassionate society. We endeavor to nurture the capacity and responsibility of human beings to act in their personal relationships and in the larger community to help create a better world. Our commitment is to the worth and dignity of every individual and to treating each human being so as to bring out the best in them and in doing so bring out the best in ourselves. We join together to assist each other in developing ethical ideas and ideals, to celebrate life's joys and support each other through life's crises, and to cultivate ethical behavior in the community around us.

Companionship For Grieving Children

42 S 3rd St

3:00 pm - 3:30 pm: Coffee & Chat - Join our great community of Ethical Humanists for coffee and chat prior to our speaker program. Have Children? Our Sunday Secular Ethical Education for Kids [SEEK] meets every 1st Sunday of the month held the same time as the adult program. All are welcome! Speaker Program: 3:30 pm - 4:45 pm Camp Koala provides grieving children with the tools and resources to help them manage their grief in a healthy way, and to offer companionship in a supportive environment. Camp Koala was established in memory of my sisters, Shelly (12) & Heather (9), who died in a car accident on Mother's Day, 1989. Through this camp, I hope to give meaning to their short lives, because they meant so much to everyone whose lives they touched. On 9/11/06, the idea came to me. After 20 years, I decided to create a camp as a living memorial to them, to help kids who experienced what I went through when I was a kid. I don't want kids to spend 20 years grieving alone like I did. It's hard for parents to help kids at times like this, because they're grieving too, and kids feel better talking with kids who have been through a similar situation. My hope is that through Camp Koala, kids can find a safe place to talk about their feelings and find friends to help them through these hard times, and also have fun! With the help of many great volunteers and a fantastic Board of Directors, we've created a safe place to work through these challenges, where people don't treat you like you're contagious.
