About Good Grief: Good Grief's mission is to normalize grief in our communities through education, advocacy and year-round grief support programs for grieving children, teens and adults. Our vision is to ensure that every child in New Jersey has access to free grief support after the death of a parent or sibling.

Good Grief supports hundreds of families each year in more than 150 cities and towns throughout New Jersey. Your contribution helps provide free programs to support grieving children and their families.

According to the New York Life Foundation, 1 out of 7 children experience the death of a parent or sibling before the age of 20. That's approximately 20,000 children who lose a parent each year in New Jersey.

Help us advocate for the needs of children so we can ensure no child ever has to grieve alone. Help us raise hope!
