Cork’s Place Kids Grief Center equips children and adults with tools and resources for coping with grief so they can live their best lives.
Cork’s Place is the only grief support facility in the Tri-Cities that is specifically designed for children, teens and families. It provides a safe and supportive environment where kids and their grown-ups are empowered to process their grief and lead productive lives.

How does the service work?
Cork’s Place offers one-day workshops and five-week long programs for kids and adults who are grieving the death of a loved one. During sessions, kids participate in hands-on activities related to grief. Adult caregivers participate in a separate grief group that meets during the same time.

Exploring grief in the natural world helps people heal.
At Wild Grief, we merge peer support with the healing power of nature. We’ve witnessed countless transformations as people engage with their grief in a natural setting alongside others on similar journeys. Simply walking together, being under the trees, and doing reflective activities leads to release, relief, and rootedness.

By offering free, outdoor experiences for teens, young adults, families, and all-ages groups, we help more people find a place where they can remember, process, and discover a path to healing.  We are a non-profit rooted in Olympia, WA and we serve people from around the region who are grieving the death of someone significant to them.   

Helping bereaved families honor the life of a child.
We seek to compassionately lift a financial burden from families who have lost a child, and offer comprehensive bereavement care in the form of grief support groups and peer companions.

Grief is a universal experience, but we don’t talk about it universally. At The Healing Center, we create space for people experiencing loss to share memories, learnings, challenges, and even laughter. Our grief support options span all ages and stages in your grief process. Healing is not linear; our programs are designed to support you as you evolve after loss.

At Dougy Center, we create safe spaces and free resources for children and families who are grieving. Our pioneering peer grief support model, professional training, and world-renowned programs and advocacy bring hope and healing around the world.

No child should grieve alone.

If you are supporting a child who is grieving, we are here to connect you to resources and local support. The alliance is a national organization of professionals dedicated to supporting children and the networks and communities surrounding them.

The Coalition to Support Grieving Students is a unique collaboration of the leading professional organizations representing classroom teachers (including teachers, paraprofessionals, and other instructional staff), principals, assistant principals, superintendents, school board members, and central office staff, student support personnel (including school counselors, school nurses, school psychologists, school social workers, and other student support personnel), and other school professionals who have come together with a common conviction: grieving students need the support and care of the school community.

Where Children and Teens Learn to Grieve and Heal

Camp Erin is the largest national grief camp network for youth and families grieving the death of a significant person in their lives.

Camp Erin supports children, teens, and families through in-person day and overnight sessions and online programs. Participants attend a camp experience that combines grief education and emotional support with fun, interactive activities. Led by bereavement professionals and caring volunteers, campers are provided a safe environment to explore their grief, learn essential coping skills, and experience community with others who are also grieving. Additional services are offered to support the whole family outside of the camp experience.

Camp Erin is offered in local communities across the US and Canada through a network of partnerships with grief centers, hospices, and hospitals in, as well as directly through Eluna’s Camp Erin Online program. Camp Erin brings connection and hope to thousands of youth and families annually. Through the support of donors, Camp Erin is offered at no cost.
