Grief is a normal response to the death of a loved one. Expression of that grief is necessary to the healing process.
At Joel's Place for Children, we provide peer support groups for school-aged children who have experienced the death of a family member. Children can express feelings, share memories and honor the loved one in a supportive and hope-filled environment.
