Ele’s Place Asks Community to Wear Blue for Children’s Grief Awareness Day

Ele’s Place would also like to welcome community members to take a tour of their building.

Ele’s Place — Capital Region is encouraging the Greater Lansing community to wear blue for Children’s Grief Awareness Day on Thursday, Nov. 17, in support of grieving children.

Ele’s Place also is welcoming community members to take a tour of its building and learn more about the nonprofit’s history and vision to ensure no child in Michigan grieves alone.

“Grief is the great equalizer,” said Ele’s Place — Capital Region Director Kristine Kuhnert. “We are grateful to have served our community for 31 years, helping over 31, 000 individuals during their time of need.”

Children’s Grief Awareness Day is designed to help the public become more aware of the needs of grieving children and of the benefits they obtain through the support of others. Children’s Grief Awareness Day is an opportunity to make sure that grieving children receive the support they need.

Ele’s Place — Capital Region is dedicated to creating awareness of and support for grieving children and their families. Through peer support groups, Ele’s Place helps children learn how to cope with the death of a parent, sibling or someone else close to them.

Ele’s Place recognizes that children’s grief is unique and that unaddressed grief can have long-term negative impacts on children’s health and well-being. It provides a supportive, welcoming environment for children to express their feelings, develop healthy coping skills, and learn to embrace loss effectively.
