Michael’s Place is diligently following public health recommendations in effort to stop or slow the spread of COVID-19 because the health of our community and the grieving families we serve is of utmost importance to us.  In light of the important need for physical distancing, our staff will be working remotely and will be available for scheduled phone support for both current and newly interested individuals.  ONLINE Grief Support Groups will also be available to enrolled adults beginning Monday, April 13th.
