Reviews for Jeffs Place Childrens Bereavement Center Inc
"The light at the end of the tunnel". Children receive therapy without even realizing it. Adults mix with other adults who get it! Jeffs place is truly an unique place with unique people. It continues to guide us.
My son has been attending Jeff's Place since his sister passed away in December and the support has been so important. He looks forward to each group and has made some great connections with other kids who have also lost siblings. I'm so thankful for this resource!
I have witnessed wonderful things at Jeff's Place. Children learn to express themselves and embark on their grief journey, families come together, parents realize they are not alone, staff and volunteers provide compassion and direction, and little miracles happen. Some of the children and families who come to Jeff's Place would be lost without it. I'm so proud of my involvement here, and of the dozens upon dozens of people who give their time to help others going through an unimaginably difficult time.

We are relatively new to Jeff's Place. After my wife passed away from a battle with brain cancer 6 months ago, we got a great recommendation from our pediatrician. My 3 kids, 14, 13 and 8 are doing well and resisted going at first, but they now look forward to the meetings and the people there. The staff is fantastic and unbelievably welcoming. My two boys, the two oldest, do not talk too much about their mother and the last few years, but I now look forward to the nice conversations we have on our rides home after the meetings.
Thanks to the people at Jeff's Place for making a difference in our lives.
Jeff's Place is a great organization that has been a tremendous help to my family.
This is our second year at Jeff's Place since the sudden loss of my husband. Words cannot express how grateful we are to have a safe place to share our experiences with. Grief can be very lonely but Jeff's Place offers understanding and support from peers in a way only those who've experienced a great loss can. My children and I are very lucky to have had Jeff's Place.
Sensitive staff and people that really listen. My children have managed to navigate the loss of their father with the help of this place. Thank you Jeffs place.
My now 10 year old son and I have been going to Jeff's Place for several years since losing his father in late 2012. It is a wonderful community where people understand your grief in ways that society, unfortunately, does not. the friendships that he and I have made, and the support that we have received over the last 4 years in astounding and unwavering, in so many ways. Jeff's Place continues to get better and better by offering more options for its families - Jenny, Melissa and Aliya, as well as the other facilitators and volunteers are all so kind and caring. Thanks Jeff's Place for providing a place for Chris and I to feel loved and supported!
My son was 12 and my daughter was 7 when we lost their father, my dear husband. We were completely devastated, and felt so alone. When we found Jeff's Place (actually Jeff's Place found us!) we finally had a place to turn where we felt a part of something, a place where my children could feel comfortable talking about their loss, or not talking about it, and a place where we could come together with other families experiencing grief. We are truly grateful for all the incredible folks at Jeff's Place, especially Jenny who makes it all happen, and who touches the lives of so many. We are happy to say we are graduates . . . Hope Grows Here!
This is an organization helping children and families to cope during the darkest time in their lives. The approach is innovative and high-impact and the model can scale. Leadership is devoted and experienced. My hope is that more children and families in need will be served by this organization in the future.
