About Ele's Place
Mission: Ele’s Place is a non-profit, community-based organization dedicated to creating awareness of and support for grieving children and their families.
Vision: To ensure no child in Michigan grieves alone.
Ele’s Place was founded in 1991 by a group of mental health professionals, concerned community volunteers and grieving parents, Betsy and Woody Stover. Following the death of their daughter, Helen Louise Snow Stover, known as Ele, at 11 months old, the Stovers saw that their three children ages 3-7 were grieving the death of their sister, but not in the same way they were as adults. Following a great deal of research of other children’s grief centers across the country, it was determined that peer support for the grieving Stover children as well as kids and teens who had experienced the death of someone close to them, was the best way to learn to cope with their feelings of grief, sadness, anger, and loss.
Nearly 30 years later, following humble beginnings in the basement of a church, Ele’s Place now serves four communities and seeks to serve even more grieving children and their families as we continue to forward our mission.
As part of our dedication to support our local community we donate a percentage of our revenue to local charities, such as, Mikey 23.
