Families Attend Our Programs for Free

The Children’s Room is the largest independent non-profit in Massachusetts that is solely dedicated to supporting grieving children, teens, and families. By providing services to both children and parents, we support children and adults as well as the family as a whole. Help us keep our promise of never adding a financial burden to grieving families.

$1,500 Pays for 1 Year for 1 Child or Teen

It costs The Children’s Room $1,500 to enroll one child or teen for one year. Most children stay in our program for 1-3 years, so a donation of $5,000 supports a family in peer support groups for an entire year, or supports 3 children or teens in peer support groups for an entire year.
