The Sharing Place

To help with a brighter tomorrow for the children of our community, The Sharing Place recently received $3000 thanks to the hard-working Real Estate Professionals in our ERA Brokers Consolidated Utah County office.

The Sharing Place is a grief support program for children, teens, and their families. They Currently offer groups in Millcreek, Taylorsville, and Mount Jordan Middle School. Its mission is to provide a safe and caring environment for grieving children, teens, and their families to share their feelings while healing themselves.


The Sharing Place was founded when a determined young mother, Chris Chytraus, sought help for her two children after their father died. She soon discovered there was a lack of resources in the Salt Lake City area for grieving children. With the help of her children’s therapist, Nancy Reiser, The Sharing Place grief support groups were created. The Sharing Place has provided a safe haven to grieving families since 1993.


The Utah County office had the pleasure of touring the facility, and meeting with the individuals who give their time as volunteers. John T. Gold the Executive Director said “We have a small staff which accomplishes life changing goals. Since we are such a small staff, we are reliant on community and corporate organizations to help us further our mission…”


After touring the facility, the agents of the Utah County office worked hard to raise money to support the organization. The office is also helping the Sharing place to procure a Utah County office for themselves! We are excited to help them continue to grow their outreach. Executive Director John T Gold finished his statement with, “…ERA Brokers [Consolidated] is such a wonderful partner. Without their help, we would not be able to make sure no child grieves alone.”


On April 1st, The Utah County office was able to go and present The Sharing place with a $3000 dollar check. Thank you to all our Real Estate Professionals who donated and helped to make this all happen! And thank you to The Sharing Place for all you do to help the children in our community.
