Welcome back to our tranquil cottage in Snug Harbor!

Dear Emma’s Place Community,
The safety, health, and well-being of our Emma’s Place community members is our highest priority. In an effort to help slow the Coronavirus pandemic, we are taking steps as an organization to minimize the risk of transmission between the grieving families we serve, our dedicated volunteers, and our staff. We have made the decision to start back at our cottage with our community’s help. We will be holding our children, tween and teen groups on Wednesdays and Thursdays at Cottage D, Snug Harbor. *We will continue to abide by the CDC and New York State COVID protocols: All MUST wear masks, social distance and show proof of vaccination.

getting started

We have found the following steps helpful in getting to know your needs and concerns.

1. A parent or guardian calls 347-850-2322, and a staff member takes basic information about your family and the person who died. You will be filling out a brief family application. All questions about Emma’s Place can be answered at that time. If you need advice about grieving children or teens, our Program Director will contact you.

2. You and your family are welcome to tour the Center upon request, to be introduced to the staff and program, to discuss the requirements for participation and to ask questions.

3. After the orientation your family will discuss participating. If interested, you complete and return the appropriate additional forms.

4. When we receive your completed application forms, we will call you regarding openings. You and your child/teen will be invited to the appropriate group meeting.

Please call for more information, registration and for any changes 347.850.2322
