For 30 years, The WARM Place has provided grief support for children ages 3 ½ - 18 and their families as well as young adults 19 - 25 who have experienced the death of a loved one.


Would you consider making a donation to The WARM Place this holiday season, so that we can continue providing our critical services to the 397 children and their families who will call The WARM Place home this season?

Your support can make a huge impact for grieving families.

“I would have never imagined that what started out as an agency with a handful of families would now be serving over 400 children at a time! What a wonderful legacy of hope and healing that has been created by our staff, families, volunteers, and donors. My hope for the next thirty years is that we are able to continue healing even more grieving hearts in our community and to truly make an impact in the lives of children.”

– Peggy Bohme, Cofounder of The WARM Place
