Thank you to all of the kind supporters who make our work possible.

Most families suffering the loss of a loved one are already burdened with financial hardship. That is why Michael’s Place board and supporters strongly believe that all who grieve should have the opportunity to receive grief support services without cost. We are a non-profit organization supported by our volunteers and contributions from people like you. Thank you very sincerely for supporting our mission.
