Ryan’s Place

23 Jan Ryan’s Place

The mission of Ryan’s Place is to provide support in a safe environment where grieving children, teens and their families can share the experience as they move through the healing process. We provide a bi-weekly program for 11 groups of grieving children and adults, an anticipatory grief program to help prepare families of dying persons, grief support programs in local schools, a teen group at Bashor Children’s Home, a program for grieving women inmates at the Elkhart County Jail, plus crisis support for schools, businesses and families after the sudden death of a student, colleague or individual. ECCF’s grant allows us to partially fund a program coordinator’s position for two school years.
