I have seen the power of Jeff's Place Children's Bereavement Center's model of providing support groups for grieving children at the same time as their parent is also finding support from their peers, a place of safety where a grieving spouse can find strength and guidance from others in the same situation. I am grateful that I can refer families to Jeff's Place, knowing that it is local, effective and that the organization provides their services at no charge to all grieving families.
