TAPS Programs: A Place of Companionship

Every TAPS program is designed to help you feel companioned as you grieve, supported as you rebuild and united with other survivors as we choose to hope. We gather at seminars or online for practical advice, sharing groups and to connect with others like us. Our young survivors grieve together, play together and learn to laugh again at Good Grief Camp. We come together in our local communities with other survivors at care groups or TAPS Togethers activities. We find opportunities to create healthy habits, seek hope and connect with nature at our Women's Empowerment and Men's Programming events. And, we rediscover traditions and memories through our Sports & Entertainment events. 

Through a wide variety of programming, TAPS helps survivors create rich lives despite loss, knowing we carry our loved ones with us - knowing that Love Lives On.
