Where Hope & Healing Live
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.

peace and comfort

I need to

Searching for meaning
You may wonder what purpose your life has now.
Stay present in the activities of each day and a sense of meaning and purpose will gradually reemerge.
Seek ongoing support
Grieving is a lengthy journey and support is needed from those who understand this reality.
Provide gentle self-care when grief is fresh
Ask for help with everyday tasks, drink plenty of fluids, take a walk, and, at bedtime, soak in a soothing bath or drink a cup of warm milk to help you sleep.
Accept your feelings
Common emotions are disbelief, numbness, fear, anger, relief, guilt, loneliness and exhaustion. Know there is no right or wrong way to feel or grieve!
