The Children’s Room is the largest independent non-profit in Massachusetts that is solely dedicated to supporting grieving children, teens and families. Families come to our programs from over 80 communities, including Southern New Hampshire.

Families Attend Our Programs for Free

By providing services to both children and parents, our program model supports children and adults as well as the family as a whole. Additionally, groups are scheduled so that children and their parents attend at the same time. During a challenging period of transition and loss, which also may include loss of income and housing, TCR’s model can simplify family life schedules without adding financial stress.

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.

  • Your $25 donation will provide arts and crafts supplies for an entire group of children.
  • Your $75 donation will pay for the first time a child walks through our doors.
  • Your $150 donation will provide ten new families with welcome packages and an orientation.
  • Your $1,500 donation will provide one child or teen with one year of our program.
