______________________________________________________________________

The Children’s Room was founded by an impassioned group of caregivers who, in 1993, received training from the renowned Oregon-based Dougy Center for Grieving Children. The name “The Children’s Room” was chosen because services were initially provided in a single room at Hospice West in Waltham, Massachusetts. By 1995, work began on making The Children’s Room a nonprofit organization, and in April 1999 The Children’s Room opened as an independent 501(c)(3) with eight experienced volunteers serving seven families out of a church basement. Within just one year, the number of people served quadrupled. In the fall of 2004, The Children’s Room established a permanent center in a house in Arlington, Massachusetts which was renovated in 2013 to expand space for our programs. We seek to broaden our impact by expanding our support services and educational outreach and deepening our community collaborations. We aspire to be a leader in the field of grief support and a catalyst in transforming society’s understanding of grief. We envision a world where understanding and patience allow loss to be integrated into our lives and lead to greater compassion, hope, and growth.
