Since Lory’s Place, the grief healing and education center
of Caring Circle, opened its doors in response to the death of
beloved community member Dr. Lory Schults, roughly 40,000
adults and children have been touched by their services.
Fifteen years later, plans are underway to expand the
organization’s services by renovating the adjacent storefront
next to Lory’s Place to create a dedicated venue for adult
programming. The new space will create a place for grieving
adults to engage life with a new perspective, learn new
skills, meet new friends, and most of all have access to a safe
and supportive environment.
“Our vision is to create a place where people feel comfortable
dropping by any time,” said Stephanie Kohler, director,
Lory’s Place. “In addition to grief education and support, adults
who lose a loved one may need guidance with everyday tasks
such as learning how to cook, managing finances, or performing
routine home or vehicle maintenance. If there is a need,
we will find a way to walk the journey together.”
