Mission Statement

The Cove Center for Grieving Children’s mission is to provide hope and healing for grieving children/teens and their families, and training for the professionals who work with them.


For over seventeen years, The Cove has provided programs that have helped children and their families deal with the grieving process. These support initiatives were designed to create a positive change with real results. Our results include: helping children understand the grieving process, how to communicate openly, how to ask for help, how to avoid the negative effects of unresolved childhood grief and, most importantly, to help them understand they are in supported and served in a safe and healing environment.

We help children understand that within each of them is the capacity to heal. We promote continuous safeguards against poor school performance, depression, drug and sexual addictions, delinquency, increased school drop out rates, nonproductive behavior, suicide and other detrimental outcomes of unresolved grief. We help children identify and eliminate obstacles that might hinder them in their healing process. We also help parents and caretakers in understanding grief and how to appropriately support their children's grieving and healing processes.
