To provide caring support for grieving children, teens, and families.

We are the leading nonprofit bereavement organization in Massachusetts dedicated to creating safe, supportive communities so that no child, teen, or family has to grieve alone. We offer grief support, training, and education. Our support services are for families with children (ages 3.5-18) who have experienced the death of a parent or sibling. We have professional partnerships with schools and community organizations. Our support services are offered free of charge to families.
