Bereaved Family Assistance
- The death of a child is a devastating reality that no parent should ever have to face alone. In this time of great need, a small measure of relief can be taken from the knowledge that you will not have to compromise how you honor your child, due to financial constraints.
- Applications for assistance are accepted on a rolling basis. They strive to make first contact within 24 hours of receiving your request and reviewing your case. Unfortunately, not every request can be approved, as they prioritize the families who are most in need of assistance.
