Wisconsin's Center of Hope for Grieving Children
MargaretAnn's Place is a center of hope for grieving children and teens, supporting families in Milwaukee, Waukesha, Racine, and Kenosha Counties and beyond. Each week, our peer support group programs helps children and teens cope with the death of a parent, sibling, or other close family member or friend.
Before being a part of one of our many grief support groups or camps, many grieving children and teens feel alone and keep their feelings inside, not wanting to burden their parents or other family members. Often, friends don’t seem to understand if they haven’t had a similar experience. But through the sessions run by MargaretAnn's Place staff and volunteers, grieving children and teens find a warm and welcoming place to meet new friends who really understand how they feel. At MargaretAnn's Place, we are here to serve the grieving community and help bring hope, healing, and smiles to the children, teens, and families we serve.
“Every time we leave MargaretAnn’s Place the kids are so exuberant. It is so nice to see them happy again.”
“We do things to remember the people we lost, to keep their memory but at the same time try moving through our lives without forgetting them.”
“MargaretAnn’s Place is a wonderful and unique place for both children and adults. It has helped my mom, my brother, and I in a way which no other place or person can.”
