What is Ele's Place?

ELE'S PLACE IS . . . a healing center for grieving children throughout the Lansing and Ann Arbor regions. Ongoing peer support group programs help hundreds of children and teens to cope with the death or life-threatening illness of a parent, sibling or other close family member or friend.

Before coming to Ele's Place, many grieving children feel alone and keep their feelings inside, not wanting to burden their parents or other family members. Often friends don't seem to understand if they haven't had a similar experience. But each week at Ele's Place, hundreds of grieving children find a warm and welcoming place to meet new friends who really understand how they feel. Some children learn how to cope with a family member's illness, while others begin to heal after the death of a loved one.
