A fun and safe place for grieving children.

Volunteers trained for A Little Hope, Inc. partnership program


In the final weekend of May, Comfort Zone is launching a camp program in Connecticut in partnership with A Little Hope, Inc. - The National Foundation for Grieving Children, Teens and Families. This program is designed for families with children who have experienced the death by suicide of a parent, sibling or guardian.


On March 28, Comfort Zone National Community Facilitator Jessi Schmale lead a volunteer training session at New York Life’s headquarters in New York City, which included A Little Hope, Inc. Board members Rich Schimel, Tanhya Vancho, Keith Brenner and Jennifer Brenner as well as consultant and nationally known child and adolescent bereavement specialist Amy Liebman Rapp.


“We loved getting to know more about how Comfort Zone will impact the lives of children at the partnership camp in May,” Tanhya said. “Being a trained volunteer makes me realize even more how important this weekend will be to families.” 


We’re also excited to announce that this program will include a day-long parent and guardian workshop led by childhood bereavement consultant Pamela Gabbay, giving them the opportunity to share their experiences among peers who can relate to their loss, receive support, and learn how they can best support their children’s efforts to manage their grief in healthy ways
