LANSING, Mich. — Throughout 2021, Ele’s Place Capital Region is inviting community members to celebrate their birthdays with a tribute to the organization’s 30th anniversary. “The founding of Ele’s Place, 30 years later, is such a testament to the need. It was embraced right away by the community and is still supported in a way that reflects the importance of the mental stability and health of our kids and our families and I think it has proven to be almost more important to the family unit than individual kids,” shared Betsy Stover, Ele’s mom. With a growing need for locally-purchased and virtual gifts, Ele’s Place has offered to send a birthday greeting to your honoree on your behalf when you make a contribution in their name. A gift of any size will provide the opportunity to download a special piece of birthday artwork, created by a child who has benefited from Ele’s Place services. These young artists and more than 30,000 other individuals have received grief support from Ele’s Place in the last thirty years.

“All gifts help us continue to provide peer-to-peer bereavement services to children, teens, young adults, and their families in our community, all at no-cost to them” said Director Kristine Kuhnert. “Grief has not been cancelled. Ele’s Place services have allowed so many to manage grief, share memories, explore their feelings, learn coping skills, and travel their journey in the company of peers.”
