Tours of the Heart

You'll walk through our programming space where children and teens attend support groups, and hear stories of Ele's Place families experincing grief support.

Program Information

In order to attend Ele’s Place groups, every family first goes through an enrollment process. To start this process and speak with a clinical program staff member, please call 616.301.1605.

Support Groups are held weekly on Monday and Thursday evenings. Families are assigned to either Monday or Thursday night groups based on their needs and group availability.
