 Location: Assembly Room of Ascension Lutheran Church at 1479 Morse Rd. Columbus, OH. (3 buildings west of  Karl Rd,  on south side of  the street) 

Our meetings are open to all family members who are grieving the death of a child. There is no religious affiliation and no dues or fees. There is a free chapter lending library and a free bi-monthly newsletter.

We offer a safe place for bereaved parents, grandparents and siblings to meet and talk freely about your child and your grief issues. No one is required to speak, but non-judgmental listening is expected.
