The Lost & Found staff is currently working from home but is still able to help you by phone and/or email. If you are a new family looking for grief support, please click the ‘Contact Us’ button on the top right of this page and complete the form, and we will contact you within 1-3 days. If you are a current family who has already attended a grief support group or have recently attended individual counseling, one of our Group Coordinators should have or will be contacting you by April 1 to make arrangements for grief support from home.

With the outbreak of COVID-19, all on-site grief support groups and Journeys groups at Lost & Found are cancelled until May 11 (per current CDC guidelines). The health of the volunteers and families we serve is our top priority. We are monitoring the situation and will post updates to our website and on social media as this situation continues to develop.

Below are resources and activities to help you and your family during this time.

“Your friends on Sesame Street are here to support you during the COVID-19 health crisis. We know that these are very stressful times; daily lives have been disrupted, and families everywhere are trying to create a new sense of normalcy. Children thrive with structure in their lives and they learn best through play–even in everyday moments like mealtimes and morning and evening routines. So our site is filled with content you can use all day long to spark playful learning, offer children comfort, and focus a bit on yourself, too. After all, it’s important that we take care of ourselves, so that we can best care for our families.”
