There's no need to go it alone.
Support in a safe place.
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 their journey of grief
to find peace, hope, and a new normal as they face life without their deceased loved one.
Ryan’s Place Families,
We are excited to inform you that due to the reduction of Covid-19 cases in our community, we are resuming in-person groups. Our first in-person Program Night will be February 22, 2021. We will continue to offer one adult group over zoom, as well as a COVID-19 bereavement group that others around the country will be welcomed to join. This Virtual Night will take place on the Monday evenings opposite of in-person program nights. You are welcome to participate in BOTH programs if you feel you would benefit from weekly support 😊
Monday in-person program nights will be held from 7:00 p.m. to 8:10 p.m. Please arrive between 6:50 and 7:00pm at:
Silverwood Mennonite Church
1745 W Lincoln Ave, Goshen, IN 46526
We will resume the following safety precautions as your safety, and the safety of our facilitators is of the upmost importance.
• Everyone will be required to wear a face mask when entering or leaving the building, face masks will be supplied if needed.
• When you arrive, your temperature will be taken and we ask that you use the hand sanitizer provided.
• After signing in, everyone will go straight to their group location.
• Masks or face shields will be required throughout group. Face shields will be supplied if requested.
• Spacing precautions will be taken during group and each child will have their own marked Ziplock bag with supplies that they will use each Program Night.
• We will not be serving dinner to families, but may provide snacks during kid’s groups.
We are so excited to see you soon, whether it is in person or over zoom! Call if you have questions.

Ryan’s Place is an amazing organization and great resource for our students and families. The groups allow students to have an outlet to learn about grief, work through their feelings, and find positive ways to handle all the intense emotions they feel throughout the grief process. We are so fortunate that they provide the support and care that our students, families, and staff need during a difficult time.Jamie
Ryan’s Place is an amazing part of our lives and it would not be possible without the wonderful volunteers who truly care about each and every soul who walk through the doors. We all came to Ryan’s Place because something tragic happened, but we are all grateful to have a place where we can go to help each other learn our new normal in life.Clayton
