Ryan House

Ryan House enriches the quality of life and creates cherished memories

for children and their families, providing a much-needed break

from 24/7 caregiving, as they navigate life-limiting or end-of-life journeys.

With the help of charitable donations, Ryan House provides support and services to children experiencing unique life-limiting and end-of-life journeys. We also offer help to their families, including caregivers and siblings. Our goal is to combine state-of-the-art care with compassion. Our services (provided at no cost to families) realize both the best practices and philosophy of pediatric palliative care.

Pediatric Respite Care

We provide short-term, overnight care for children to help provide a break to the family. Due to generous donations, families can receive up to 28 days of respite care every year at no cost.

Pediatric Palliative Care

We take a holistic approach that integrates best practices with the philosophy of palliative care. Through this service, we help mitigate the physical, emotional, spiritual, and psychosocial pain for both the patient and family.

Life-Enhancing Therapeutic Activities

Children develop new skills, experience new sensations, and build confidence. Activities include art, music, pet interactions, recreation, Legacy Building, and hydrotherapy, all of which are able to be provided with the help of our generous donors.

Pediatric End-of-Life Care

Having a child facing end-of-life is something no family can be ready for. We provide support and comfort to children and their families to help navigate the child’s end-of-life journey, allowing them to focus more on being there for each other.

Grief and Bereavement Support

We also strive to support families through grief and bereavement services. This includes Bridges of Support, family counseling, annual community events honoring patients who passed away, and bereavement boxes for families.


Donations & Support

All Ryan House services are provided to families free of charge. We are able to do this thanks to generous donors in the community who provide 100% of our funding. Dealing with serious pediatric illness is already an unimaginable challenge. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we are able to offer support and care without adding the additional worry of cost to the families in these impossible situations.
