Jeff’s Place recognizes the journey of the bereaved
Jenny, Executive Director, grew up in MetroWest with her parents and two brothers. The eldest, Jeff, drowned just shy of his 18th birthday. Her family’s story of loss, healing, integration and growth propelled Jenny into the field of Social Work and Bereavement Services. After many years at FRIENDS WAY, a respected, comprehensive children’s bereavement center in Rhode Island she founded, Jenny is thrilled for the opportunity to offer similar support for the grieving children, teens and families in the MetroWest community.
Jeff’s Place represents hope and the possibility of a revised story for one’s self and family. It is a metaphor for the journey of which all our courageous participants will traverse in their own ways through the safety and comfort of each other and our remarkable, compassionate, skilled staff and volunteer facilitators.
