Billy’s Place is a community in the West Valley that provides comfort and companionship to kids and families experiencing grief—no matter where they are on their journey.
Through support groups, special events, and a community of people who ‘get it,’ we help families rediscover moments of happiness without guilt. We nurture these moments as signs of hope for more promising days ahead.
We see people for who they are—people with complex and beautiful identities beyond the grief.
We don’t see kids who have lost a parent or adults who have lost a partner or child. We see Emily, and Jack, and Billy. We see people like us.
We welcome all kids and families who have experienced the loss of someone special to find community and peer support at Billy’s Place—a safe community created for them and by them.
The need for Billy’s Place arose after my son Billy and I began coping with the sudden death of my husband, Mike. Billy was only 15 months old and our lives were changed forever. As a team, Billy and I have worked together to use what we have learned in our journey to help others know there is hope.
Billy's Place is a tribute to children and families who will be forever changed and challenged by the death of their loved ones. At Billy's Place we are proud to provide an organization that helps children and their families cope with the death of a significant person.
Thank you to the Peoria Chamber of Commerce and our wonderful community for voting Billy's Place Non Profit of the Year for 2017! We are so proud to be part of this community!
