Lory's Place Plans Facility Expansion


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.”
