“As a society we are often uncomfortable talking about death, dying and illness.  Grief and loss become “the elephant in the room” that no one wants to talk about.  One of the most valuable aspects of Imagine is that the children who attend discover they’re not alone and that what they are feeling is normal,” said Mandi Zucker, Imagine Program Director.   

Imagine is a free year-round peer grief support center located in Westfield, NJ and serving all of Union County and beyond. Imagine serves children age 3-18  who have had a parent or sibling die, with concurrent support groups for their parents or guardians.   Support for children and teens living with a parent or sibling with a life-altering physical illness is also available through the Imagine Tender Living Care program. Free year-round support groups are also available for adults 18 and up who have had a friend, sibling, parent or other important person in their life die, or who have a parent, sibling or friend living with an illness.  For support or for more information visit their website at www.imaginenj.org or contact info@imaginenj.org or 908-264-3100
