Mary’s Place is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide an atmosphere of thrust where families who are grieving a death of a family member can share their experiences, receive support and find comfort, as noted on their website.
The Poquonock Avenue facility is one of only three grieving centers in Connecticut, and prides itself on providing quality social work care for children as young as three and families.
Founder Mary Keanu , an oncology nurse opened Mary’s Place in 1996 after converting the facility that previously housed Carmon Community Funeral Homes, a major benefactor of the organization, According to her biography on Mary’s Place website, her realization of the need for a support system for young people who had suffered the death of a loved one pushed her to organize peer support groups, which ultimately developed into Mary’s Place. For more information on how to donate beyond the weekly cruise nights, visit the centers website at .https://www.Mary’s place.org.
