The Kids' Place

The Kids’ Place began as a community-based, independent, non-profit charity devoted to providing grief support services to children, ages four through teens, who are mourning the death of a family member or friend. 


In the summer of 2004, the Edmond Church of Christ took on the leadership of The Kids’ Place in Edmond with the purpose of continuing the effective work of grief support. Under the oversight of the Edmond Church of Christ, The Kids’ Place provides local grief support services to children, ages four through teens, who are mourning the death of a family member or friend. The Kids' Place ministry is a faith-based program that strives to offer comfort, hope and peace found only in Jesus Christ.


Each fall and spring, we conduct support groups at The Kids’ Place in Edmond. Each group, which meets on a different evening, is divided into age-appropriate small groups so children can have maximum care and support. There are concurrent groups for their adult family members each night. 

With the involvement of many caring volunteers and the support and prayers of so many, we provide services to about 50 families, representing over 150 individuals, throughout each year. Our goal is to provide a safe place to grieve and to be a loving companion for children and families on their grief journeys. 


The Kids’ Place is a support group center, not a counseling center. To create a safe and supportive environment for those who grieve, our support groups do not allow drop-ins. Grieving families can call us at (405) 341-3353 or (405) 844-KIDS to request an application packet and to sign up to attend an orientation meeting.
