National Bereavement Resource Guide

Sponsored by New York Life and Eluna.

Wherever children and their families are grieving, and wherever they are in the grieving process, we are here to help.

New York Life is proud to partner with Eluna to provide the enclosed compilation of state and local resources—camps and grief organizations organized by state, plus books and websites for children and their families experiencing loss.

The New York Life Foundation has long been focused on serving children in need. In 2008, the Foundation expanded that focus to include an initiative to help children deal with the loss of a parent, caregiver or sibling and to help parents deal with the emotional turmoil that results from the death of a close family member. We believe this comprehensive guide will provide the necessary resources and directory of services to help support grieving families in communities across the country. In addition, we've developed a bereavement website that can help—

Eluna is a public, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with a mission to provide comfort, hope and healing to children affected by loss and family addiction. Founded in 2000 by World Series champion pitcher Jamie Moyer and his wife Karen, The Foundation created and supports two signature programs. Camp Erin is the nation's largest network of free bereavement camps for grieving children and teens ages 6-17. Camp Mariposa is a free, first-of-its-kind program for children ages 9-12 impacted by a family member's addiction. For more information on Eluna and its programs, please visit
