In 1996, inspired by her vision, Lillian Julien gathered a group of parents living with the loss of a child together for solace and support. They began meeting informally in the safety of each other’s homes, finding comfort and support by being together and freely expressing their grief with people who could understand. Through this sense of community, they were able to thrive and impact each other’s lives while remaining eternally connected to their children. They began reaching out to other parents living with the loss of their children, and their group grew into a larger network. Their experiences together have generated love and hope, resulting in the creation of COPE, a foundation dedicated to providing emotional support to individuals and families who are struggling to cope with life after loss.
COPE was recognized as a 501(c) (3) organization in 1999 and has grown from a small group of families meeting in each others’ homes to a support network of over 1000 families meeting, gathering and healing at our new location, COPE at Cedarmere, 225 Bryant Avenue, Roslyn, NY 11576, as well as in generously donated space on Long Island.
COPE’s programs have expanded to offer support to all family members including Camp Erin NYC – a free weekend bereavement camp for children and teens ages 6-17 who are grieving the death of someone close to them as well as our Teen General Loss Bereavement Group.Visit Website
