The one year Anniversary of the tragic events at Sandy Hook Elementary was on December 14, 2013. Our hearts go out to the children and families of Newtown, CT. 

We have posted resources for children and families in Newtown and across the state of CT on our Resources Page.  Newtown Youth and Family Services has listings of supportive services. 





The Cove and The Moyer Foundation hosted a free
summer camp for children from across CT who are grieving
the death of a loved one or significant person in their life.
The Camp took place this year on June 6,7 & 8, 2014. Next year's camp is scheduled for June 5-7, 2015!
