About Us

Our Mission

Our mission at Harbor Lights is to support children, teens, and families coping with loss. Put simply, we create an environment where kids – and the adults in their lives – have the resources they need to navigate the grieving process. Currently, Harbor Lights serves Westchester and Fairfield Counties, along with the surrounding areas.

How We Do It

Our guiding principle is simple: we believe that it’s crucial for children to find solace and comfort in every aspect of their lives. The Harbor Lights Foundation is committed to providing support, education, and resources with family and friends, peers, educators, and community organizations so that children dealing with illness or grief have an intricate support network available in every part of their lives. Core activities at Harbor Lights include:

  • Individual and group support (children, teens and parents)
  • Family Workshops (children, teens and parents)
  • School support
    • Teacher support
    • Grief counseling
    • Curriculum
    • Workshops
  • Community support, leader education, and workshops
