On August 1, 2019, we lost our son Ian.

Everything happened so fast, it felt like the whole next year was a blur. To make matters worse, everywhere we looked, there were no local resources that said, "here's how you deal with loss." Instead, it was a lot of general information, but nothing tangible we could hold.

The only thing we had was each other, and our faith.

So we created Ian's Place for Bereaved Parents in his honor, to help those who feel lost, alone, and don't know where to go.

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


We Welcome You

You are not alone

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.

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.
