Dustin's Place is a non-profit children's grief center.
Our Story - It isn't until you experience the death of a loved one that you fully grasp grief and the need for grief support. Often times grief can be all encompassing leaving adults to try to put families back together in the midst of their own grief and children without the grief support they need.
Dustin's Place is named in memory of Dustin Cullen. A Believer who lived his life as a testament to God's grace. Dustin loved his family and friends completely. He was the husband of Viki (Cullen) Brown and the father of Caythan, Liliana, and Dean Cullen. In 2016, Dustin was in a single car fatal accident leaving his wife, Viki, as a young widow alone to love for, car for, and attempt to put life back together again for their 3 young children at 6 years old. 5 years old, and 11 months old.
While they were surrounded with love from their family and friends the need for grief support and care was evident. Viki and her children attended a children's grief support group together and immediately felt the connection with other grieving families.
In October 2018, Viki along with some of Dustin's closest friends began the process of opening a children's grief center in our own community. Dustin's Place was founded February 18, 2019. Dustin's Place will provide grief support through group meetings where children and their families can gather together with adults volunteers who through their passion have chosen to be companions to others during their grief walks.
