Mission Statement

Brooke's Place supports grieving young people and their families in the belief that hope for tomorrow begins today.

Description

Brooke's Place is a community based not-for-profit organization which provides grief support to young people ages 3 - 20+ and their parents/guardians. Support groups meet twice monthly year-round. All services are free and an at-cost meal is served each program night. Hands on activities including crafts, art materials, games and other grieving aids provide supportive tools during group time. These activities are designed to help young people identify their fears, concerns and grief reactions. All individuals learn coping skills to help them manage their grief, lessen the pain of their sadness and help them reconcile the death of their loved ones.

Would you recommend Brooke's Place for Grieving Young People, Inc.?

by Natalie R. from INDIANAPOLIS, IN (2015-07-12 14:29:54.0)
Brooke's Place is a wonderful organization comprised of compassionate, genuine individuals. It exists to provide support for grieving children and their families. It's a great, safe place for the people it serves. It's also an amazing place to volunteer. They are so appreciative and supportive of their volunteers. As a volunteer, you are well-trained and never left without assistance. The environment is laid-back, but everything runs smoothly because of the competence of staff and long-time volunteers. I highly recommend Brooke's Place to anyone who's interested. You'll be welcomed with open arms!

Brooks Place provides a safe, supporting place where young people can share with others who have had similar losses. Grief support is amazing and I've seen kids open up and bloom again after their experiences with this organization. I highly recommend them.
