Children are truly the forgotten grievers. Consequently bereavement groups for children don't exist in the state....except for The Cove. The Cove does an incredible job of supporting grieving children and adolescents. Simply being together with grieving peers helps to reduce the tremendous isolation associated with grief. The age-appropriate activities help to normalize the grieving process and provide coping skills. Imagine the impact on a child/adolescent grieving the recent death of a loved one when a peer states, "It does get easier with time." Imagine the impact on the grieving participant when the facilitator talks about taking a break from their grief to participate in an activity they enjoy. Imagine the chance to express regrets in a supportive environment. Research has shown that how a child/adolescent copes with grief is directly impacted by how the parent(s) or caregivers cope with their grief. Thus The Cove offers a professionally-facilitated support group for parents while the children are in their groups. My volunteer experience with The Cove was incredible. I have no doubt that the organization has made a tremendous difference in the lives of hundreds of grieving families.

The Cove Center for Grieving Children is a non-profit that truly impacts the development of children and their families. Through the work that facilitators, board members, volunteers and contributors do this supportive environment helps children learn to cope with their loss and successfully grow through this difficult change in their lives. It brings children together with other children their age who have experienced a similar loss, which makes them feel supported and more importantly not alone in their experience. Through creative activities and group work children are able to process and learn from their grief, and I have seen many children become happier kids that go on to help others like themselves. This unique non-profit also support the family as a whole, enabling families to learn together and grow as a family unit. Death is a hard topic and The Cove makes it a safe and loving environment to process feelings and emotions that others may not comprehend. I am grateful for this non-profit and all the hard work it does to support children and families. The growth of this non-profit is a testament to the positive impact it has on grieving children and families!

The Cove’s mission is unique. They are providing 5 star programming to a population that is awfully overlooked. My experience as a volunteer has been incredibly rewarding. The Cove is efficient and understands the unique needs of each child it serves. It is a place where families experience a profoundly positive experience. I look forward to continue to volunteer with The Cove. Great mission. Great people. Profound impact.
