GrieveWell seeks volunteers who know what it is like to grieve the loss of a loved one and want to support others. We offer many different opportunities and levels – from a day long event volunteer to several hours a month as a peer counselor.
"You provided some incredible resources that will help our community cope with the pain of losing a loved one."
Chuck H.,Tecumseh District Library, a community partner
“Informative, helpful, validating. Thank you so much for creating this podcast it has taught me a lot about the grieving process and how to understand my own grief. . . If anyone is looking for help with their grief or a loved-one’s, or if you just want to learn more about grief, I highly recommend you give this podcast a listen.”

“This was the most effective training and positive experience I've had since my daughter's death in 2018. I heard everything I needed to hear and felt better afterward than after any other therapy, counseling, group session.”
Nancy, workshop attendee
“After losing my daughter I found it very comforting and hopeful talking to someone who has been through the same thing. My counselor Julie knew exactly how I felt which gave so much credibility to her advice. She helped me more than words can say. I highly recommend GrieveWell!”
Donna, a GrieveWell donor and volunteer
"I felt such hope in coming here. We lost our only child when she was 25. I felt so lost. Then I found GrieveWell."
Cindy, former client, volunteer and donor
“I took the workshop Grieve Well - Understanding Grief. It was very well presented, had a great PowerPoint presentation and workbook. Would definitely take other programs put on by GrieveWell.”
Carol, Workshop Attendee
“The workshop affirmed my grieving process and gave me new activities I can do to process my grief.”
“During the workshop, I appreciated that people were able to share their own stories. The structure and flexibility of the workshop was nice and intimate. I also really appreciated the great resources I can take home!”
“GrieveWell has done a wonderful job of raising awareness of the topics of death and grief in our community. Their workshops, presentations, and sponsored events promote community discussion and understanding."
Peggy, Ele's Place
“The peer-to-peer counseling provided me a set time each week to talk through my emotions and experiences with someone who understood what I was going through. Having the support of another person during tougher times like anniversaries and holidays was so helpful to me during my grief journey.”
