About Ele’s Place Ann Arbor
Ele’s Place is a non-profit, community based 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to creating awareness of and support for grieving children and their families, with branches in Ann Arbor, the Capital Region, Greater Flint and Genesee County and West Michigan. Ele’s Place Ann Arbor is the only nonprofit in the community and surrounding southeast Michigan region, dedicated solely to helping children and teens work with and through grief. Unfortunately, the need for its services will never go away. Unresolved grief negatively affects children and teens, contributing to alarming rates of depression, addiction and violence. The organization’s vision is to ensure no child or teen in Michigan grieves alone. For more information, please visit the Ele’s Place website at www.elesplace.org.
