Aftercare and outreach are essentially the same. If you wanted to have a balloon send-off with children who write notes, tie it to the bottom of a helium balloon and release it into the sky, that’s an aftercare event. When you have a program that honors veterans as a group, it is an outreach program. Both programs give you an opportunity to demonstrate to your community that you are the most knowledgeable person in this community on death, dying, grieving and surviving.
