"I know in my heart that Ele’s Place saved my family. I was at a total loss on how to help my boys, as well as myself grieve the death of my wife. Ele’s Place provided an outlet to express our feelings, and the tools to come together as a family." - Les Rogers

Ele's Place has had the honor of serving grieving children, teens and their families across Michigan since 1991. Ele's Place's commitment to providing for the needs of grieving children is possible only because of the generosity of the communities we serve.  Thanks to our dedicated weekly volunteers, in-kind donations, service projects of other community organizations, and financial contributions, Ele's Place is proud to offer all programming at no cost for participants.  

Ele's Place would like to thank YOU for supporting grieving children and teens throughout our communities in Ann Arbor, Flint, Grand Rapids and Lansing.The impact of your generosity is profound!  In the past year, our staff and volunteers helped thousands of lives through support groups, school-based programs, clinical consultations, and community education.
