About Our Program

Good Grief provides peer-support groups for children, teens and young adults who have lost a parent or sibling to death. We also provide group support for the children’s surviving parent(s) or caretaker. Our Night of Support groups meet either on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday night from 6:30-8:30pm in Morristown or 6:30-8:30pm on Wednesdays in Princeton. Families are assigned to a specific Night of Support and attend with that same group every other week.These groups are free of charge.

Through our special Bear Makin’ Project, enrolled families may have a soft bear created from the clothing of those who have died. For additional information see the Bear Project page.

For a list of other resources, tips, and recommended readings please see our Resources page.
