Good Grief

Partner Overview

At Good Grief, we provide unlimited and free support to children, teens, young adults, and families after the death of a mother, father, sister, or brother through peer support programs, education, and advocacy. Our programs address the needs of the whole child: breaking down isolation and stigmas, equipping families with coping strategies and communication skills, and promoting good mental and physical health. Good Grief works to raise awareness and advocate for grieving children and families to ensure that no child ever has to grieve alone.

Our vision is to provide free, unlimited, and accessible support and advocacy to children and teens throughout New Jersey, while making New Jersey the first state to fully support and advocate for all of its children and families who are grieving.
