Jeff’s Place facilitates healthy integration of loss for children, teens, and their families by helping them feel connected with each other and less alone in their grief journey.
No child grieves alone.
We believe that the expert on grief is the one who is grieving
We reassure that there is no right or wrong way to grieve
We promote peer-to-peer connections to decrease feelings of isolation
We build confidence and self-esteem through trusting and empathic bonds
We encourage kids to explore their grief through play
We help integrate memories into a new life story
We provide hope, healing, and meaningful growth for all whose lives we touch
How is Jeff’s Place unique?
We provide FREE support services within MetroWest Boston, facilitated by licensed clinicians. Jeff’s Place also offers crisis intervention and professional educational trainings on childhood bereavement for local schools and organizations. Jeff’s Place has grown through the vision, personal and professional experience of its Founder, Jenny Kaplan Schreiber, who is a bereaved sibling, licensed independent clinical social worker, doctoral candidate, and has worked with grieving children and their families for more than 20 years. She is a pioneer of evidence-based best practices for bereaved children and teens. Jeff’s Place is the lead organization for a national research study to identify the best ways to support grieving children and teens.
