Support in a Safe Place
The Dougy Center provides support in a safe place where children, teens, young adults, and their families grieving a death can share their experiences.
We provide support and training locally, nationally and internationally to individuals and organizations seeking to assist children in grief. We are supported solely through private support from individuals, foundations and companies. The Dougy Center does not charge a fee for its services.

Support Grieving Families like the Coopers
Tammy Cooper, Maddy and Kate, 9-year-old twins, and Charlie, their 7-year-old sister, have come to rely on The Dougy Center as a safe place after their father, Kerry, died suddenly of a massive stroke brought on by a brain aneurysm.
Tammy learned about The Dougy Center in the way that many families do. First the hospital staff, then friends and acquaintances, then coworkers recommended she call The Dougy Center.
