Elijah 's Place is a program to provide ongoing grief support services to children, ages 5 to 18, who have experienced the death of a parent or sibling, and their families. Children grieve differently from adults; for that reason, it is important to allow them to communicate their feelings with other children who can understand.

Elijah 's Place provides a setting for age specific group support sessions for the children (ages 5-6, 7-10, 11-13, and 14-18) and a support session for parents. Parents and children will come to Elijah 's Place two evenings each month. Participation in the program can last 12 to 18 months, or until the family decides they no longer require the service. All support sessions are led by trained group facilitators who are supervised by a licensed professional. The evening for Families begins with a pot-luck Supper, followed by support group from 7:00 until 8:15. The evening ends at 8:30.

Kitchen Volunteers help set up for the pot-luck dinner that is held before the Elijah 's Place group meets. Kitchen Volunteers also make sure things run smoothly during dinner and help clean and straighten up after the kids go to group.
