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.
The GriefCare Place is announcing a public fundraising effort: the sale of customized, commemorative bricks to be placed in their beautiful Memorial Garden.
Affordable at $100 each, multiple bricks can be placed together to create a lasting family tribute. The Memorial Garden is open at all times to anyone and is a serene place for contemplation and refreshing.
All proceeds will help sustain grief support groups and programs without
cost and for as long as needed, at The GriefCare Place.
For more information on this fundraiser, and other opportunities to support The GriefCare Place, call 330-686-1750 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have resumed our “pre-pandemic” scheduling format for our group meetings. That means we will no longer require pre-registration for meetings.
We will continue to adhere to government and CDC standards of proper distancing and sanitizing after each group meeting.
Masks are required.
We ask that before arriving for any of the group meetings you self check your temperature and stay home if you are having any COVID-19 symptoms. For the safety of everyone in our GriefCare Place family of grievers, we ask that you stay home if you are not feeling well. Then rejoin your regular group(s) when you are feeling better!
We understand that this has been a very challenging time for you trying to deal with not only your grief journey but the isolation and anxiety from the pandemic as well. We are looking forward to coming together to encourage, support and provide some TLC.
The 2020 NON EVENT
To keep everyone safe and healthy our "chefs" will not be cooking this year!
Instead of buying tickets to the event, or food to make for the event, we are asking for a monetary donation benefiting The GriefCare Place.
Thank you to the generous donors and sponsors who have responded thus far.
