Ways to Support Grieving
Families & Joel's Place for Children

Spread the Word

  • Learn our mission and tell people who may be grieving about us. Joel’s Place for Children provides grief support to school-aged children and their families who have experienced the death of someone special in their lives. We hope you’ll never need our services, but know that we are here if you or someone you know does. Learn more about Joel’s Place for Children grief support groups and check out our online grief support resources.

Use GiveLively to Create a Personal Fundraising Page to Honor and Memorialize Someone Special

  • If you have been touched by grief, or have been involved with Joel’s Place, please consider creating your own fundraising page to let your friends and family know why the mission of Joel’s Place matters to you. Visit our GiveLively page HERE, and watch a video on how to create your own personal fundraising page HERE.
  • Grief can feel so isolating. Use this as a chance to remember fondly, and teach people the power of peer support when you are grieving.
