Since 1995, The Cove has been providing support and services to grieving children and their families in Connecticut. We provide program models designed to address the unique needs of children and teens who have experienced the death of a significant person in their lives. The Cove offers family and children's programs in a variety of settings, including urban/community centers, places of worship, and schools. The main focus of all Cove programs is to help grieving children and teenagers learn healing and coping strategies, as well as creative communication that help validate their emotions and guide them toward transforming their unresolved grief.

In addition to our programs for children and their families, The Cove also provides seminars, conferences, workshops, and training sessions developed to assist adults and professionals (teachers, guidance counselors, medical & psychiatric practitioners) in recognizing and understanding the child’s grieving process.
