NACG – National Alliance for Children's Grief
The NACG is a nationwide network comprised of professionals, institutions, and volunteers who promote best practices, educational programming, and critical resources to facilitate the mental, emotional, and physical health of grieving children and their families.
The mission of Eluna is to support children and families impacted by grief or addiction. Our innovative resources and programs address the critical needs of children experiencing powerful, overwhelming and often confusing emotions associated with the death of someone close to them or substance abuse in their family. No child should have to face these struggles alone, and our unique programs bring kids together to ease their pain and provide the tools to help restore hope.

What's your Grief - A Grief Website for the Rest of Us
What We Do
To put it simply, this website is about grief.
That probably sounds oversimplified, but grief is a complex topic. Grief is an emotional, logistical, and existential nightmare. It requires us to navigate life without someone important, deal with overwhelming thoughts and feelings, and find ways to function in a world turned on its head.
COMPASSION. SUPPORT. COMMUNITY.
People love to comment on our name. We chose it to remind everyone that grief serves a purpose and that even grief can be good when cared for in a supportive community. Good Grief is 100% free with the help of friends. At Good Grief, we teach resiliency and facilitate healthy coping in the lives of more than 900 children each month by providing a caring and understanding environment that is like no other. In addition to our free programs, we advocate for our families by educating their school districts, employers, and communities. Since 2007, Good Grief has expanded in order to fulfill our commitment to grieving children and families and meet the demand for our services in order to ensure that no child ever has to grieve alone.
Grief.com is dedicated to help everyone deal with the often unknown terrain that comes along with all kinds of grief. Through education, information and other helpful resources we hope to make the challenging road of grief a little easier.
