Ele's Place is a healing center for grieving children, supporting families in the Lansing and Ann Arbor regions and beyond. Each week, peer support group programs help hundreds of children and teens to cope with the death or life-threatening illness of a parent, sibling or other close family member or friend.



Ele’s Place was established in 1991 and is named in honor of Ele Stover, who died in 1989 at the age of 11 months. Ele is survived by four siblings whose lives will be forever affected by her life, illness and death. “ELE” also represents the organization’s philosophy of Embracing Loss Effectively.
