What we aim to solve

One in four pregnancies ends in loss. Families who experience the loss of a child are often unprepared for the financial implications. This can cause worry and stress and ultimately financial ruin.

Charting Impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have they accomplished so far and what's next?

We work to ensure that no family suffers this loss alone. We offer peer support and financial assistance for medical and end-of-life expenses. We also seek to raise awareness of pregnancy and infant loss and childhood death and disease. We find that until it happens "close to home", many people are ignorant of the fact that children die.

We work throughout the year to promote awareness of pregnancy and infant loss. We raise funds to support the families who need us.

Each member of our board of directors has been directly impacted by child loss. This gives us unique perspective and compassion toward this cause. We work tirelessly to support our mission.

When we can say "yes" to every family who asks for help, we will be making progress towards our goal of making sure families are supported through their loss.

Since our start in 2016, we have given financial assistance to 138 families across the United States.
