About Ronnie’s House
Ronnie’s House for Hope was founded in 2018 in honor of Ronnie Loza. Ronnie was a husband and father, when he died, his wife and two children were left to grieve alone. The Coachella Valley needed a specialized grief support program that served all ages, so Jennifer Loza made it her mission to conceptualize the Valley’s only peer-based grief focused support program. Tragically, in 2020, Jennifer lost her youngest son, Steven, to a Fentanyl poisoning. Jennifer hopes that Ronnie’s House for Hope can be a safe haven for grieving families like hers.
