Tallahassee- Lee's Place helps people who may be coping with some sort of loss of a loved one.
The house on Lake Ella is full of people you can turn to if the holiday season becomes too overwhelming, no matter what your financial situation.
Thursday night, Lee's Place hosted an open house to remind the community that if you have suffered a loss, there is always someone you can reach out to.
Beth Tedio is one of the representatives at Lee's Place, she says, "It's always hard around the holidays, we have a lot more people calling, asking for help, but it is also a time when people want to donate more too."
If you'd like to find out how you can donate to the non-profit, you can call 850- 841-7733. Or log onto leesplace.org.
Lee's Place was founded in 2000, by Dr. Brenda Rabalais in memory of her son who died from bone cancer at the age of 14. Lee's Place also helps people who are experiencing any life-changing events, such as divorce, break-ups and victims of crime. At this time of year, therapists at Lee's Place say they hear a lot from military families who have a loved one serving overseas.
