The National Alliance for Grieving Children (NAGC) provides a network for nationwide communication between hundreds of children’s bereavement support professionals and volunteers who want to share ideas, information and resources with each other to better support the families they serve in their own communities, as well as promoting awareness of the needs of children and teens grieving a death and provides education and resources for anyone who wants to support them… Because all grieving children deserve a chance to heal. Some of the resources include the ones you’ve shared but there are also additional ones that may be helpful.

We hope that you will share these resources with those who will find them useful.
