Michael's Place Receives $50K Grant To Expand

By Beth Milligan | Jan. 31, 2018

Grief support organization Michael’s Place has received a $50,000 grant from the New York Life Foundation to support its Restoring Hope Project.

The grant will expand Michael's Place grief support services into Wexford and Missaukee counties. Bereaved at-risk children, their families, educators, and supportive community members will be provided opportunities for grief support, education, and resources not currently available in the area.  These willinclude in-school support groups and homework help for grieving children, parent grief support and education groups, community workshops, expressive activities for children, and a mobile library of grief-related resources and materials available through the schools.  

“We are grateful for the New York Life Foundation’s investment in this program, which will help us broaden our services to reach underserved youth,” says Executive Director Mindy Buell. "The support will help many grieving children and their families in our community and beyond to begin the healing process."
