Bereavement Center of Westchester Charity Profile
We believe that grief is a personal journey and that each person deserves the opportunity to grieve in a supportive, accepting environment. Our mission is to create a safe and caring environment where both adult and child receive the special attention and support needed to move through the pain of grief toward hope and healing. The Bereavement Center opened its doors in 1995, through the efforts of Jansen Memorial Hospice and The Junior League of Bronxville. The staff at Jansen saw the need for a community bereavement program in Westchester County, with a special program for children. It was because of their vision and leadership that The Bereavement Center began.
The Bereavement Center is a program of Lawrence Community Health Services, located in Tuckahoe, New York, about 30 miles north of New York City. In addition to The Bereavement Center, Lawrence Community Health Services includes Jansen Hospice and Palliative Care and Lawrence Home Care of Westchester, and operates in affiliation with Lawrence Hospital Center and the New York-Presbyterian Healthcare System.
Since our inception in 1995, our programs have increasingly grown as we have continued to respond to the needs we have seen in the community. Our belief and mission statements will guide us forward as we remain responsive and open to new challenges and ideas.
