Who We Are

Safe Place

The GriefCare Place opened its doors in June of 1997. It offers a SAFE PLACE where those grieving the death of a loved one can find support, education, understanding, and a caring place to heal. The center serves individuals of all ages, offers a home-like atmosphere and is a non-denominational faith based organization where those of strong faith or those of none can come comfortably.


The GriefCare Place educates participants about grief and provides caring volunteers who walk alongside and companion them during the grieving/healing process.


The GriefCare Place charges no fees and is funded entirely by fundraising events, donations, and memorial gifts. Since it is a charitable, non-profit organization, all donations are tax deductible under IRS section 501(c)(3). Financial support is a continuous need, greatly appreciated, and is responsibly spent.


We LOVE our volunteers

The GriefCare Place could not support our grievers without the faithful help of our volunteers

Whether you work directly with grievers at group meetings, behind the scenes keeping our facilities in good order or helping with special events to keep our doors open, YOU are making a difference in the lives of others!

If you are not currently one of our valued volunteers and have some time to invest in helping others, please contact the office and we would be glad to match your talents with a need here at the GriefCare Place


Thanksgiving Thought

Gratitude is important because it has the power to change our attitude.

Even when we find ourselves on a grief journey after losing a loved one...

Even when we find it difficult to think of anything to be grateful for this year...

We still can give thanks for:

Time - that we had with our loved one

Family - those who are related by blood and those who aren't.  Love makes families - not bloodlines

Friends - Those that we cherish for their love and support

Love - that's been given to me so freely from hearts that were broken like mine but still could offer me strength and hope

From all of the staff and volunteers at the GriefCare Place - we pray you have a  peaceful Thanksgiving
