COVID 19 Update

For the safety of our families, CLIMB® Programs in Colorado are postponed until July 9th.  The AOSW Annual Conference in Raleigh, NC has been cancelled, so we will not hold our training workshop in June. (See the Workshop and Training page for more details.)

In response to our families needs to help express all the new emotions during this pandemic, some stay-at-home materials for families have been developed. Follow this link to our videos and written materials: CLIMB®-at-Home.

Please check back for periodic updates and stay safe.       6/8/20

Founded in January of 2001* in Denver, Colorado, we are the nation’s only organization providing group-based, manualized and internationally delivered, psychosocial intervention developed specifically to support the emotional needs of children with a parent or caregiver who has cancer. This often overlooked aspect of cancer treatment now has a program that kids, parents and oncology professionals all rave about, the CLIMB® Program.  

Bringing you the CLIMB® Program

The Beneficiaries of Our Program


Family Support

With the help of the group-support program, the family’s burden of dealing with cancer, and the inevitable stress, is significantly reduced.

Professional Training

We provide cancer center oncology support professionals the tools they need to conduct ongoing support programs for the children whose parents have cancer.

Our Children

Our program, CLIMB®, helps to normalize feelings of sadness, anxiety, fear and anger of the children, while stimulating improved communication between the children and the parents.
