Nonprofit Spotlight: Good Grief Comes to Princeton

Good Grief’s First Group of Facilitators for Princeton.

Editor’s note: this is one organization you’ll want to familiarize yourself with and remember for future reference. Read on & you’ll see what we mean, and see why we’re thrilled to introduce this awesome nonprofit to our Princeton community.

The loss of a parent or sibling has a huge impact on a family.  Navigating that terrain as a parent – coping with the loss while supporting children who are trying to cope – is certainly a challenge that many of our neighbors may be face. Good Grief is here to support grieving families. Offering free groups for children, teens, and families after the death of a parent or sibling, the organization focuses on helping the entire family deal with loss in a constructive way – and has now launched a program right here, in Princeton.

Started in Morristown, NJ, Good Grief’s program attendance grew so rapidly that they have launched a satellite program in Princeton, serving the greater Princeton area & parts of Pennsylvania. Over Martin Luther King weekend, the Princeton center trained its first class of program facilitators – volunteers who included bereaved mothers, a professor, counselors, educators, advocates, and even a Good Grief mom. They’re ready to support children & families in need, and we want to help them get the word out!

We are thrilled to welcome Good Grief to Princeton, and we won’t hesitate to share the name with friends who may be struggling in the face of a difficult loss. Let’s get the word out to our community! As they launch their first Princeton sessions this month, they’re celebrating with a launch party at the Nassau Club. The party is not only celebrating the program’s growth, it’s meant to introduce Good Grief to our neighbors & community leaders. Interested in attending?
