There are few things more heart breaking than when family member dies leaving behind young children. Together, we can offer families support, guidance and a place for their kids to begin healing.
We would like to offer you the opportunity to see a behind the scenes snapshot of the important services that Ele's Places offers to grieving families in our community. Please join us for our Tour of the Heart. This is not a fundraiser; attendees are asked for nothing at a tour. It is simply a one hour inspirational and educational tour of the work and mission of Ele's Place.
Ele's Place is a healing center for grieving children and teens. Each week, peer support group programs help hundreds of children, ages 3-18, learn how to cope and begin to heal after the death of a parent, sibling, or close family friend.
