Healing through hope

Support for bereaved parents

Welcome to Ian’s Place

Our Mission

Ian’s Place exists to help bereaved parents find a place for comfort and healing in a Christian environment. Our mission is to support newly bereaved parents as well as those who have grieved the loss of a child for years.

We are here to pray, listen, talk and cry with each other for as long as it takes to find healing through hope for the future.

We Are Here to Listen

We want to meet you where you are on your journey.

We’ve Been Where You Are

You may not believe you will walk back into the light, but we can walk with you.

Healing Through Hope

With faith, love, and support you will find yourself healing through this journey.

We are not professional counselors or licensed therapists.
We are bereaved parents like you offering support.

We aim to help those who need to grieve in a safe space, with people who have experienced the loss of their child.

Dear Friend,

We know the dark place you are in right now.  We’ve been there and at times, we find ourselves there again. You may not believe you will walk back into the light and laugh or find joy. But with hope, love, and support, you will.

Private, Safe, & Comfortable

On your own, the struggles of grief often lead to dark places that are seemingly impossible to escape.  We know.  Ian’s Place is a private and safe and comfortable environment shared only with other parents who are grieving with loss of their own.
