Making a Difference
Prior to the existence of A Little Hope, there was not a single national organization dedicated to raising awareness and the money to advance the growth of children's grief support and the expansion of bereavement centers, school outreach programs and camps for grieving children and teens in the United States.
During the past 14 years, we have grown from a regional organization funding five bereavement programs in the tri-state area, into a national foundation that has funded a total of 94 organizations in 39 states. We have expanded our scope from providing bereavement support services to 350 children and teens that had a family member die in the World Trade Center, to providing services for more than 250,000 American children, adolescents and young adults.
In 2016 A Little Hope is proud to continue several innovative programs:
Comfort Zone Camp - 2nd Annual Suicide Loss Family Bereavement Camp (May)
Experience Camps for Boys & Girls - 2nd Annual Kennbyrook Experience, New York Camp (August) and Inclusion Initiative (2016-2017)
Inclusion Trainings/Community Outreach/Program Creation initiative
A Little Hope's 2016 program support includes: Common Ground Grief Center(New Jersey); The Alcove Center for Grieving Children & Families (New Jersey); The Shore Grief Center (Wake Forest, North Carolina); Tomorrow's Rainbow (Coconut Creek, Broward County, Florida); A Caring Hand - The Billy Esposito Bereavement Center (New York/Harlem Expansion).
A Little Hope is a proud participant in the Combined Federal Campaign through Child Aid USA CFC Code #49216.
