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 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
Remember the good times;
cherish the memories,
but live each day
Focus your thoughts
on what is before you
and how you are going
to get there.
"I often tell people that
there are three stages
you need to think about:
You can't go back.
You can't stay here.
You must go forward.
says Dr. Ray Pritchard.
