The Cove Center for Grieving Children is celebrating its 25th anniversary. Founded by Bruce McIntyre’s wife, Renée and Jim and Mary Ann Emswiler, The Cove began with just six families and eight children in an effort to help children navigate the grieving process. Bruce became active in the organization in 2000, when the executive director, Mary Ann Emswiler, asked him to help co-chair, organize, and manage Run for the Cove, a fundraising road race. There is currently no federal, state, or local funding for The Cove and Bruce extends time, effort, and training to help it run successfully. In addition to his work with The Cove and Camp Erin (an extension of The Cove), and raising five children of his own, Bruce and Renée opened their home to Leo Arias, a child in the ABC-A Better Chance program. Leo came to the U.S. from the Dominican Republic at age 12 and attributes much of his personal growth to the support he received through ABC and the McIntyre family.
