Support Groups for Children, Teens & Families

Joel’s Place provides peer-based grief support group services free of charge to grieving children and their families and caregivers in northeast Ohio. Sessions take place twice monthly on Tuesdays from 7:00 – 8:15 pm at Bay Presbyterian Church in Bay Village for children 5-18 and their families.  Grief support group participants share their experience and learn from the experiences of others. We offer a pizza dinner for the group at 6:30pm, prior to grief support groups.

While your children are participating in our groups, we are committed to providing a safe environment.

  • Prior to attending their first meeting, we meet with families one-on-one to assess their needs.
  • All sessions are facilitated by at least two trained adults
  • Sessions are confidential
  • References and fingerprinting are required for all facilitators
