aka 55 Mid Hudson New York Chapter   |   Poughkeepsie, NY   |  www.mhbpusa.com

Mission

We, as bereaved parents, grandparents and siblings help grieving families rebuild their lives following the death of a child. We provide grief education, emotional support, empathy, hope and healing for bereaved families. We accomplish this mission through talking about our own personal grief experiences (empathy), by serving as role models of successful grieving practices (hope and healing), and by reviewing and disseminating current research on grief and mourning (education).

We serve Dutchess, Ulster, Orange, Putnam and Columbia Counties in New York State
