Support for Grieving Adults

Local Support for grieving adults Expands

Support for Grieving Adults ExpandsLory’s Place began 15 years ago in response to the death of a beloved community member, Lory Schults, DPM. Since opening its doors, roughly 40,000 grieving adults and children have been helped by professionally trained staff, support groups, educational resources, and community outreach. To provide hope and strength for every grieving person, it is time to expand! Construction on the adjacent storefront next to Lory’s Place in St. Joseph has begun and will soon provide a dedicated venue for adult programs. This will create a one-of-a-kind atmosphere to assist grieving community members, as they reenter life without their loved one. A calming social space The new meeting space will have a relaxed and open feel, like a coffee house where people can drop by anytime or meet individually with a staff member or volunteer. A kitchen area will be available for preparing and serving refreshments, or for individuals learning to cook. Figuring out how to handle routine home or vehicle maintenance, managing finances, or adjusting to meals alone, can be unchartered territory. If there is a need, the staff and volunteers at Lory’s Place will find a way to help with these personal moments. The burden of unresolved grief Statistics show that ignoring grief can contribute to:

  •  Alcohol and/or drug abuse
  • Decreased productivity
  • Divorce
  • Financial instability
  • Increased medical costs
  • Lost time from work
  • Physical and mental health problems

The Lory’s Place expansion project will create a safe haven for grieving adults to engage in life with a new perspective, while they learn new coping skills and meet friends.
