Peter’s Place is a center for grieving children and families located in Radnor, PA. At our center, we offer age-appropriate peer support groups for children ages 4–17. While the children meet, their parents and caregivers have an opportunity to participate in their own peer support group. Additionally, Peter’s Place offers a group for young adults, ages 18-25, and a specialized peer support group called Ryan’s Hope, which is for parents who have experienced the death of a child as a result of addiction.
In addition to offering peer support groups at our center, we also offer 8-week peer support groups in schools where children might otherwise not have access to our services. We also provide education about grief for professionals and community members, and we are engaging in research to make strides in the understanding of the field of bereavement.
Our peer support services to children and families are offered free of charge. This is to ensure that they are accessible to all who need them, regardless of financial barriers. We rely wholly on the generosity of our volunteers, individuals, corporate sponsors, and foundations to make the work of Peter’s Place possible.
