Dear Colleague Letter: Children Who Have Lost a Caregiver
The Administration on Children and Families (ACF) published a Dear Colleague Letter to provide information about federal resources available to support children, youth, and families who have experienced the loss of a parent or caregiver and encourage everyone to consider their role in supporting families and building community resilience.
Grief can look very different person by person and family by family. This letter highlights ways various stakeholders can take action to assist children and families with economic; behavioral health, grief, and trauma; early childhood programs; and other essential supports.
The letter can be found in both English and Spanish. Along with the letter, ACF Assistant Secretary January Contreras published a blog in English and Spanish and recorded a short video.
