Who we serve
The need is great in the state of Alabama. There has been an increase in pregnancy and infant deaths over the last few years and Alabama is now one of the leading states for infant death, surpassed only by Mississippi. There are no government funds available to support bereaved families who need to make final arrangements for their baby and ongoing support to rebuild their lives. Together we can support these families and make a difference in Alabama.
As of December 2017, The Alabama Chapter of The TEARS Foundation has assisted many families with funeral services, hosted memorial gatherings remembering Alabama babies, and held its inaugural Alabama Rock & Walk gathering the community and bereaved families to walk and raise funds together in honor of their child to help future families.
