Support Programs

We provide in-person and virtual support those who are grieving the loss of a loved one.

Michael’s Place offers in-person and virtual grief support programs designed to ease the complex emotions experienced after the loss of a loved one. Grieving children, teens, and adults often feel disconnected from friends and family members, and the use of a support system with others who understand can help them on their journey of healing. It is often easier to discuss loss with others who are having similar experiences.

Getting Started

So that Michael’s Place may learn more about your needs, please contact the staff at (231) 947-6453 or via email at to schedule an informational visit. At that time, you will meet with a staff member to learn about our programs and services, hear your story, discuss any concerns, or answer any questions you may have.

Together, we find HOPE.

We offer support opportunities that range from discussion-focused peer support groups to events and activities that are creative and educational. Each program is designed to elicit feelings of comfort, safety, and hope for those we serve. Children and teens can engage in activity-based support groups and monthly ‘best-day’ events. A variety of adult support groups and workshops are available.

We also offer specialized programs for schools, businesses and other organizations.

Workshops, Activities and Other Events

In addition to our support programs, Michael’s Place offers a variety of workshops, events and activities for both children and adults throughout the calendar year.
