Delaware

If you have found us because you have experienced a loss, our hearts go out to you.  We welcome you to reach out and join us as we honor babies gone too soon.  If you would like to speak with someone or need financial assistance fill out our online application form and someone who can help will be in touch.

The need is great in Delaware. There is limited 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 Delaware.

Help your Community

Anyone who is interested in supporting bereaved families in Delaware is welcome and encouraged to attend one of these upcoming events, or apply to become a VolunTEAR with this form.

Holiday Ornament Exchange
Date:
11/23/2019
Location: TBD
Time: TBD
We will hold a Holiday Ornament Exchange on November 23 in the early afternoon to honor each other’s babies this holiday season. We will post a survey on our Facebook page for anyone who is interested in participating that will ask for special symbols, colors, imagery, etc. that links each participating family to their baby. Once all of the entries have been completed, we will randomly pair everyone with an ornament buddy who they will make an ornament for. Everyone will be responsible for creating/making/purchasing just one ornament for the event. The day of the event, we will gather to exchange the ornaments and fellowship among other loss families in the community with light beverages and peer support.
