Childhood Bereavement Changemaker Collaborative
The Childhood Bereavement Changemaker (CBC) Collaborative is an initiative developed by Judi’s House/JAG Institute in partnership with the New York Life Foundation to support agencies in using the Childhood Bereavement Estimation Model (CBEM) to better understand grief in their communities.
Organizations from across the nation submitted RFPs to participate in the first-ever CBC Collaborative. RFPs are currently being reviewed and finalists will be announced in November.
Selected organizations will gain detailed information about childhood bereavement in their own communities. Equipped with this knowledge, organizations will have the data necessary to inform planning, influence change, increase funding, and enhance overall impact ensuring bereaved children in their communities have the care they need.
Chosen CBC Collaborative participants will receive:
Collaboration with the experienced Judi’s House/JAG Institute (JH/JAG) team of researchers, clinicians, and multi-disciplinary staff
Access to JH/JAG resources and networks
Comprehensive community needs assessment/gap analysis
Customized CBEM report designed to support organizational strategic goals and objectives
Meeting coordination and forum for CBC Community
Connection and engagement with other local and national partners in the childhood bereavement field
Identification as a partner in the CBC Collaborative
NOTE: The CBC Collaborative RFP closed August 30, 2019, but Childhood Bereavement Estimation Model (CBEM) resources and reports can still be found here.
