Kelly's Grief Center
Kelly’s Grief Center is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) that was founded in 2009 to provide support and counseling by licensed clinical counselors for adults, teens and children grieving the loss of a loved one. Kelly’s is committed to making sure help will be immediate, accessible and of the highest professional quality. The center serves individuals of all ages and offers support through both one on one counseling and/or therapy groups. These groups are designed to provide a safe and supportive setting for people to share their loss journey. Every second and fourth Tuesday of the month, three unique support groups that are developmentally appropriate (one for children, one for teens and one for adults) meet to help participants understand and work through their grief. These groups are educational and supportive and focus on teaching children, teens and adults healthy ways to cope with feelings and emotions associated with life transitions.
