Welcome to Ryan’s Place

At Ryan’s Place, we provide grief support to children, teens, and families. Ryan’s Place works with the bereaved to provide support and education as they travel on their journey of grief to find peace, hope, and a new normal as they face life without their deceased loved one.

You don’t need to grieve alone.

“Each person’s grief journey is as unique as a fingerprint or a snowflake” ~ Earl Grollman

We are here to help

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.


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.

Group Support

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.

Community Education

Ryan’s Place provides presentations, training, and guidance for educators, health care professionals, and others interested in learning how to help grieving children and teens.
