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.
When life knocks you down,
roll over and look at the stars!
You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face!
When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you till it seems as if you couldn't hold on a minute longer, never give up then. For that's just the time and place that the tide will turn!
Harriet Beecher Stowe
Don't lose hope - when it gets darkest, the star come out...
Hope is brightest when it dawns from fears
Sir Walter Scott
Turn your face toward the sun and the shadows fall behind you.
Others may look at you during this time of difficulty and only see the pain in your eyes. We look and also see the courage in your heart, the determination in your spirit, and the calmness in your soul
that says over and over...
I can do this! I can do this!

Hold on...when you hear that song that reminds you of your loved one
Hold on...when you find yourself thinking "I wish they were here for this moment so badly it hurts"
Hold on...during those quiet in-between moments when you feel your loved one's absence most acutely
Hold on because you're going to make it
Hold on because you're not the only one
Hold on because there's hope that next year will be better
You may shed tears but remember that your grief is an expression of love and such an expression is never wrong...
This may be a hard day BUT you have survived hard days!
You will survive this one!!
