Suncoast Kid's Place

The Suncoast Kid’s Place Ministry meets at Bell Shoals Brandon Campus and provides support for children, teens, and their families following the death of a loved one through peer support groups and education. Their goal is to offer support in a safe place where children, teens, and families can share their experience as they move through their grief process. The program meets at Bell Shoals Baptist Church on the first and third Thursday of each month during the school year. They do not meet during school holidays. This extraordinary ministry is in desperate need of additional volunteers.
