“This summer, the Irvington school district is repairing the existing playground at Main Street School, and removing an irreparable piece of equipment. The design and plan for the different phases will be shared when we return to school. I am looking for parents who are interested in helping to lead the fundraising effort. Thank you!”

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.

CP Soccer’s mission is to build a nation-wide soccer league for kids who suffer from cerebral palsy, stroke or traumatic brain injury. Currently in the US, there is a clear path for able-bodied kids to play soccer throughout their youth and up to the highest levels, culminating in the Olympics. For people with developmental disabilities, there are programs like TOPS Soccer, which leads to the Special Olympics at the highest level. Paralympic Soccer is the highest level of play for people with physical disabilities, who are otherwise developmentally able. To qualify for Paralympic Soccer, players must have some sort of brain injury – cerebral palsy, stroke or traumatic brain injury. While there are national feeder systems for Olympic Soccer and Special Olympic Soccer, there is no national program for kids who would qualify for the Paralympics. We are creating the first national feeder system in the US for Paralympic Soccer.
