• Childhood bereavement

    Helping bereaved children and their families cope with loss.

Childhood bereavement is one of society’s most pervasive issues: one in twenty Americans will lose a parent or sibling before age 16 and the vast majority of children experience a significant loss by the time they complete high school. Yet bereaved children remain largely unseen and under-served within their communities and schools.

Recognizing the critical need to provide greater support to bereaved children and their families, the New York Life Foundation established childhood bereavement as a key focus area in 2008 – an issue at the heart of our company’s mission and day-to-day business.
