We’re always told, “It’ll be ok.” But, it really doesn’t feel like it. Grieving takes time and is very important. We’re here to help provide hope and healing.
There's no need to go it alone.
“Each person’s grief journey is as unique as a fingerprint or a snowflake”
~ Earl Grollman
Support in a safe place.
Ryan’s Place provides support in a safe place where children, teens and their families can share their experiences.
Children and teens often feel isolated and unable to talk about the death with peers who have not had a similar experience. Ryan’s Place provides bi-monthly peer-to-peer support groups for children, teens and their families who have experienced the death of a loved one.
Each year Ryan’s Place is able to serve hundreds of children, teens and their families because of the extraordinary people we call volunteers. Contact us to learn how you can become a volunteer.
Thank you for giving us Ryan’s Place. It’s not a place that anyone ever imagines they will need. But we did need it, and without your help we would not have come as far as we have. When our world came crashing down, thank you for giving us hope in spite of our grief.Mitch
I like Ryan’s Place because it makes me feel safe and it helps me forget all of the bad things in life.James - Age 6
We all grieve.Whether we lost a child, a parent, or a good friend, it always hurts.
