“We are so proud of what we offer for the grieving families in our community. We are ready to begin the next step in our journey to build a new home for Billy’s Place and want to showcase what we are all about! The children of our community deserve to have a safe place to mourn loss and learn healthy coping skills after a special person in their life has died”, Founder Juli McGreal said.
