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


We Resolve to...

  Acknowledging our special needs as grieving persons, we can choose to make softer resolutions for the new year—resolutions that can still be challenging, yet are not unrealistic.


Why not frame your New Year’s resolutions in terms of hope for a gentler year; for gaining control of your emotions, for better understanding of the grief process and what we can learn about ourselves as we journey thru it? Why not resolve to enter into a future that can be good, even though it lacks all that we might desire, and offers a hope that we will be at peace with sorrow and enjoy life even though we grieve. 

Our hope for those in the throes of fresh grief is that someday your days will again bring you more joy… more music...more laughter…more gratitude…more friends…more surprises…more memories 

Facing the New Year

Take special care of yourself as the New Year approaches.

Get rest - both physical and mental

Get support - from groups, family and friends

Get spiritual support from your minister, priest or rabbi

 Most important, we will find courage to live into the future, into the new year, by living in the present, one day at a time, doing the best we can to care for ourselves and others today 

We wish you a peaceful

 New Year
