We provide free peer grief support year-round for as long as is needed. We are currently serving over 260 children and families from 55 New Jersey towns in our center every two weeks. In addition to these services, we provide training through our education and outreach programs across the state to a variety of organizations including schools, houses of worship and corporations.

Our goal is to create communities where grief and loss are transformed into resilience, empathy and compassion; and create communities where no child grieves alone.
