Who We Are

About Centering Corporation

Centering Corporation is a non-profit (501 C-3) organization dedicated to providing education and resources for the bereaved. Centering was founded in 1977 by Joy and Dr. Marvin Johnson. We started with nine little coloring books for hospitalized children and two workshop offerings for nurses and families. In response to the need for support by families and caregivers while facing their grief experience we developed many new resources. Today we have over 500 grief resources for children and adults. We continue to provide educational offerings and workshops for caregivers and families. The second generation, Janet (Sieff) Roberts, brings new life and ideas to meet our changing needs in today’s bereavement experiences.
