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 regular healing workshops including yoga, meditation, art, movement, music, 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® NYC, a free summer weekend experience to support kids and families who are grieving.

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