The Garden

A Center for Grieving Children and Teens

The Garden provides support to grieving young people ages 5-18, and their families following the death of someone close, including parents, siblings, other family members, or friends. We have an on-site program for the whole family and support area schools with our outreach program. There are no limits on how, where, or when the death occurred.

Our aim is to give grieving young people a safe place to share, remember, and connect with others who are also grieving.

For more information, call us at 413-727-5749 or email us. If you’re interested in volunteer opportunities at The Garden, download a volunteer application. You can also follow our Facebook page for Garden updates and more resources.
