Concord Ridge is involved in the local community and shares a special connection to Lory’s Place, a children's bereavement Center named for Lory Schults. In the winter of 2004 when Sophia Schults was just 3 years old, her mother, Lory, tragically died in a car accident. After Lory’s passing, Sophia’s father, Ron Schults, sold his business to spend time with his children. In Lory’s memory, he helped set up Lory’s Place.
Healing With Horses
Since then, Lory’s Place has helped thousands of children who have lost a loved one and are in need of a refuge where one can heal. Sophia’s involvement in the center taught her to appreciate “what you have every day.”
Each summer a special day camp is held at Concord Ridge to show children experiencing loss the therapeutic benefits animals can have. Horses in particular can bring a unique level of peace and companionship. Though very large animals, especially compared to small children, horses are relatable in the way they love and even grieve.
