The Moyer Foundation is a public, non-profit organization that seeks to provide comfort, hope and healing to children affected by loss and family addiction. Founded in 2000 by World Series champion pitcher Jamie Moyer and his wife Karen, The Foundation created and supports two signature programs. Featured in the film ONE LAST HUG: THREE DAYS AT GRIEF CAMP, Camp Erin® is the nation’s largest network of free bereavement camps for grieving children and teens. Camp Mariposa® is a free, first-of-its-kind program for children impacted by a family member’s addiction.
The mission of OUR HOUSE is to provide the community with grief support services, education, resources, and hope. For twenty years, OUR HOUSE has helped thousands of grieving children, teens, and adults as they embark upon their journeys to hope and healing. OUR HOUSE manages Camp Erin® Los Angeles – featured in the film ONE LAST HUG: THREE DAYS AT GRIEF CAMP.
Inspired by New York Life’s tradition of service and humanity, the New York Life Foundation has, since its founding in 1979, provided charitable contributions to national and local nonprofit organizations. The Foundation has a Website, www.AChildInGrief.com, which offers informational and educational resources for parents, kids, educators, and the public regarding loss. Those resources include a downloadable brochure, “After a Loved One Dies – How Children Grieve,” offering advice and guidance to parents and other caregivers as they help children cope with their grief and fear following a death in the family.
Based in the Center for the Urban Child at St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children in Philadelphia, the Center provides guidance to the parents and schools of children touched by crises that may include the death of family members, friends or others important in a child’s life.
