Grieving Kids and Teens Need Special Support, Alive Provides

Did you know there are more grieving children here in Tennessee than most other states? We rank 7th for childhood bereavement; one in ten loses a parent or sibling before graduating high school. Grief can challenge any family’s stability, and children have special needs as they cope. Alive has programs specifically for children and teens. Any child who has experienced the death of someone significant can participate, and no one is turned away for a lack of funds. Learn more about our special programs at
