Through Hidden Pain, we’ve brought together community organizations, grief groups, government resources, and more to surround children that have lost a caregiver to COVID-19 with a comprehensive network of support.

Hidden Pain is an initiative of COVID Collaborative, a bipartisan coalition of the nation’s leading experts in public health, education, and the economy working together with state and local leaders across America to win the fight against COVID-19. Our work is guided by an Advisory Council comprised of experts across sectors, and we are grateful to have the support of many organizations working to support young people.
