Creating safe, supportive communities so that no child, teen, or family has to grieve alone.

The Children’s Room offers virtual and in-person grief support services for children and families at its Arlington Center, at schools, and at community organizations across the Greater Boston area. Services include peer support groups, parent groups, teen programs, and Family Night. Consultations and referrals are also provided.

 

How can we help?

The Children’s Room is here when you are ready to learn more about our free-to-all grief support services for children and their families.

The Children’s Room culture and all its services reflect the following fundamental beliefs…

Everyone experiences grief in a unique way.

The experience of grief does not end, but changes over time.

Within each of us there is a natural capacity to adapt to a world changed by death.

Grief is a natural and healthy response to death.

Grief is transformative and can lead to personal growth not previously imagined.

Being with others who have experienced a death reduces isolation and can provide hope.
