Resources for Grief Professionals

We know that as counselors, social workers, chaplains, medical professionals, teachers, hospice workers, and those who work closely with military families, you are on the front lines of providing comfort, hope and healing.

Whether it's your assigned duty, a chosen profession or a shared experience, TAPS appreciates the care and comfort you provide for those left behind when a military death occurs. We are here to support you with resources, education, training and volunteer opportunities.

It can be difficult to bear witness to grief and stand with those who suffer, so know you are part of the TAPS family. We provide ongoing training and support to assist you with this responsibility. The work you do is meaningful and important. Thank you for your willingness to walk through the darkest moments with our nation’s surviving military families.
