The Haley Cremer Foundation helps sponsor Circle Support Groups at Joanna’s Place.
Three separate Circle groups, for children, 5-13 years, each with its own focus on resilience:
- Circle G offers support for children and their parents facing the loss of a parent or sibling,
- Circle S offers support for children and their parent facing the challenges of being a ‘typical sibling; that is, having a brother or sister with a significant special need’.
- Circle I offers support for children and parents facing a life-challenging or chronic illness
Yet the harsh reality is that many families face unimaginable losses. Consider these numbers: every fifteen minutes, a baby dies; every four hours, an adolescent takes his or her life by suicide; every day, 13 children are victims of homicide; every day 190 adults die in accidents.
Joanna’s Place was founded in loving memory of Joanna Mullin. This non-profit organization is working to provide continued support to families who are suffering a significant loss or change. Joanna’s Place offers services to families for free so that everyone has access to the help they need, when they need it most.
