A fun and safe place for grieving children.

Comfort Zone Camp Hires National Program Director

Comfort Zone Camp is very pleased to announce that Alesia K. Alexander, MSW, LCSW, CT has been hired in the role of National Program Director and will start on December 19, 2016. Alesia comes to Comfort Zone with a wealth of experience in the arena of grief. Most recently she served as the Founder and Executive Director of Project KARMA, Inc., a healing community and forum for educating and supporting at-risk youth and families on issues of grief and loss.


As a licensed clinical social worker, Alesia has over 18 years of experience in community-based, non-profit, hospice, and mental health settings. In her new role at Comfort Zone, she will be responsible for strategic leadership, management, and oversight of all of Comfort Zone Camp programs and services. 


“Alesia’s accomplishments and dedication within the field of grief and loss are simply too extensive to list here, as she has dedicated her life and career to this field on so many levels,” said Mary Beth McIntire, CEO of Comfort Zone Camp. “We are fortunate to have Alesia joining our team and look forward to the spirited and compassionate approach that she brings to all of her work.”


Alesia is also an accomplished author, having published several books, including one called Dream Clouds, a beautifully written and illustrated book that offers a child’s perspective into the experience of grief, and Tapestries: A Creative & Inclusive Approach to Grief Support for Youth & Communities.


"Being a part of the Comfort Zone Camp vision for grief support for children and families living with loss is the opportunity of a lifetime,” said Alesia. “I am bowled over by the passion of the leadership team, CZC staff, and stakeholders in challenging the perceptions of the child and adolescent grief experience, and grief support at the micro and macro levels. I am pleased to be engaged as a part of the team. The task of supporting current programs, and also crafting new ways to support and grow programming that is resonant, reflective, and innovative for families nationally is exciting." 


Alesia is a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. and has served on numerous boards and community organizations. She is a past board member for National Alliance for Grieving Children, 2009-2013, and has lent her time and talent to the National Alliance for Grieving Children and the Association for Death Education and Counseling.
