Losing a loved one is always difficult, but it can be especially hard for children who may be too young to understand and process that kind of grief. For this week’s Neighbors in Action we talk to Kelly Koerner, associate program director of Ele’s Place, a non-profit where children can receive grief counseling and find peer support.
