D'Esopo Bereavement Center

Over 20 years ago, the D’Esopo Funeral Chapel opened its innovative Bereavement Resource Center, the first of its kind in the country.  Since its establishment, the Resource Center has been a national leader in providing families with comprehensive grief support and recovery that extends long after the service has concluded.

The Resource Center has set a high standard in the funeral industry and is nationally recognized for the dynamic and innovative programs provided by a highly skilled staff such as renowned author and grief expert, Karen Carney (RN, LCSW, FT), the Center’s Bereavement Program Director. The Center houses an extensive lending library and serves as the center of  grief education and support programs, and internship opportunities statewide.

In 2003, a non-profit foundation was established to continue the work started by the D'Esopo family. The D'Esopo Resource Center and the Safe Place to Grieve Foundation are located at 109 Main Street in Old Wethersfield, CT. For directions, please click HERE.
