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.
One step can start a journey.
One song can change a moment,
One smile can start a friendship,
One hug can lift a soul,
One candle can wipe out darkness,
One life can make a difference,
One word can start a prayer.
One hope will lift a spirit.
One touch can show you care.
Be that one today...
For June the GriefCare Place will continue offering groups on a limited basis as dictated by the gathering constraint of 10 in place by Governor DeWine.
These group meetings will be offered to those actively attending a group when we were directed to stop meeting in early March.
We are adhering to government authority mandates that are in place to ensure social distancing and sanitizing after each meeting. All participants and leaders are required to wear masks the entire time they are at GriefCare Place.
We are hopeful that we will be able to resume our regular schedule of groups in July. We have missed being with our grievers in person and are very anxious to welcome everyone back at one of our regular group meetings. Check our Facebook page for ongoing updates.
In the meantime, you are invited to call the office at 330.686.1750 during normal business hours of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. if you have questions, other needs or just to check in.
Grief changes us...
The pain sculpts us
into someone who
Understands more deeply
Hurts more often
Appreciates more quickly
Cries more easily
Hopes more desperately
Loves more openly
Loss and heartache
do not define you -
they are part of your story!
The story of love...
