About Us

The Center for Grieving Children, based in Portland Maine, provides loving support to grieving children, teens, families and the community through peer support, outreach, and education. We honor and encourage the safe expression of grief and loss. We provide a loving community to foster the discovery and development of each child's own resiliency and emotional well-being. 

The Center serves more than 4,000 grieving children, teens, families, and young adults annually, and provides all of its services for free. The center reaches individuals from diverse cultural backgrounds, and relies on financial contributions from individuals, businesses, foundations, United Way, and special events. Since its founding in 1987, the Center for Grieving Children has served more than 66,000 children, teens, and their families.The Center is a 501(c) 3 organization.
