Mission Statement

COPE is a nonprofit grief and healing organization dedicated to helping parents and families living with the loss of a child.


"We are members of a club no one wants to join."

That is how bereaved parents describe themselves. During the worst time in their lives, COPE helps families.

COPE is a nonprofit grief and healing organization helping parents and families living with the loss of a child. Started by bereaved parents, COPE now offers professionally led support groups, a grief support phone line, and monthly healing workshops including yoga, meditation, Reiki, art, movement, music, writing and journaling.

Founded in 1999, COPE has grown to support children and teens who have lost a loved one, particularly through COPE’s Camp Erin(r) NYC, a free summer weekend experience to support kids and parents who are grieving.

We have enhanced our bereavement services to youth and professionals in low-resourced communities. Our train-the-trainer model and child and youth focused coping skills groups provide needed care to families living in high risk neighborhoods.

Traumatic and complicated grief takes a physical and emotional toll on survivors. Our COPE families learn they are not alone and gain tools that incorporate healthy coping mechanisms into their bereavement process.

Parents and children grow and heal as they learn to live with their devastating loss.
