The TEARS Foundation seeks to compassionately lift a financial burden from families who have lost a child by providing funds to assist with the cost of burial or cremation services. We believe that every child’s life deserves to be honored and memorialized in accordance with the grieving parents’ wishes and are committed to helping bereaved parents with this experience. Every grieving parent deserves access to ongoing bereavement support, so we also offer parents comprehensive bereavement care in the form of grief support groups and peer companions.

As the number of families we serve continues to grow, so does our need for support from the community. Together, we can help bereaved families honor the life of their child.
