Mary's Place offers peer grief support groups for children ages 3-18.  Our Little Kids Group is for children ages 3-7, Big Kids Group ages 8-12 and Teens Group ages 13-18.  The peer support groups are offered to children who are grieving the death of a parent, sibling or in the case of teens, a close friend. We also have a Young Widows and Widowers Group.  All groups are offered at no charge to families. Besides our in house support groups we have a resource center and library, offer support and guidance to schools and the community and offer a 6 week course for our parents on Understanding Children's Grief.

Our mission is to provide an atmosphere of trust in which children and families who are grieving a death share their experiences, receive support and find comfort. We are able to do this through peer support groups, education and training.
