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.

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.

I am a comedian who had the pleasure of doing a fundraiser for this organization. The people involved with this organization are amazing. By meeting with them and finding out about the event I was blown away at the positive influence they have on the people in this program. My hart goes out to anyone who needs this program but my heart also feels so much better that there are the people in this program to help.
I can't say enough about this place, as a comedian I am constently doing fundraisers for programs but this one has made a lasting impression on me for life
