From the despair of 9/11, a haven for grief support grows in Red Bank

Sheila Martello, who lost her husband Jimmy in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, founded Stephy’s Place, a center where the bereaved can find comfort and support.

Stephy’s Place offers 27 different bereavement support groups, all free.

“I will do anything that I can for Stephy’s Place,” Lori Jarck, who lost her 16-year-old son last year, told reporter Jerry Carino of the Asbury Park Press. “I have never felt so traumatized and sick as when my son died. Without them, I would still feel that way. Of course every minute of every day I think about Pierce, but I feel strong now.”
