Support Groups
Joel's Place provides services free of charge.
We meet with families one-on-one to assess their needs.
Twice monthly grief support groups are held on the West Side at Bay Presbyterian Church in Bay Village for children 5-18 and their families.
We also offer a support group for adults who bring children to Joel's Place. The adult sessions are held at the same time as the children's sessions.
Sessions take place from 7:00 - 8:15 pm. For more information, or to register, please call:
440-248-4412 or 440-934-1353
Group participants share their experience and learn from the experiences of others. Age-appropriate discussions, craft projects, games, and books are selected to facilitate the expression of feelings.
While your children are participating in our groups, we are committed to providing a safe environment.
All sessions are facilitated by two trained adults.
Sessions are confidential.
References and fingerprinting are required for all facilitators
Joel's Place offers grief support groups. We do not offer therapy or counseling.

How We Do It
We train volunteer facilitators to accompany children and teens on their grief journey. Joel's Place is supported primarily by tax-deductible donations from individuals, corporations, and foundations. We are supported in the community by organizations who donate space for our groups and by volunteers who donate everything from professional skills to snacks and supplies.
