“The Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation is dedicated to curing spinal cord injury by funding innovative research, and improving the quality of life for people living with paralysis through grants, information and advocacy. In 1995, when Christopher Reeve was injured, the American Paralysis Association (APA) was one of the first places that he and Dana turned to. Christopher had formed his own foundation, but in 1999, they came together as the Christopher Reeve Foundation. Today, the Foundation is recognized as the premier spinal cord injury research organization throughout the world. Through the Reeve Foundation’s persistence and promise, neuroscientists around the world agree that repairing the damaged spinal cord is not a question of if, but a question of when.”

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.

Our monthly healing workshops offer yoga, meditation, Reiki, art, movement, music, breath work and more.

COPE offers special events and workshops, professional forums, a grief support line and an extensive website, ongoing support group meetings and the one-on-one support of peer mentors.
