Good Grief – Helping Children and Teens Cope with Loss
Moyer Foundation and Resource Center – The mission of The Moyer Foundation is to provide comfort, hope and healing to children and families affected by grief and addiction. Their innovative resources and programs address the critical needs of children experiencing powerful, overwhelming and often confusing emotions associated with the death of someone close to them or substance abuse in their family. No child should have to face these struggles alone, and their unique programs bring kids together to ease their pain and provide the tools to help restore hope.
The Moyer Foundation has two signature camp programs: Camp Erin for grieving children and Camp Mariposa for children impacted by addiction in their family. Their newest initiative, The Resource Center, broadens the continuum of care by providing an online library of information as well as a personalized connection to a network of support organizations that will strengthen children and their families’ ability to hope and heal. Visit www.moyerfoundation.org to explore our unique approach and to find support.
