Who we serve
The need is great in the state of Florida. 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. With your support, we can support these families and make a difference in Florida.
The Florida Chapter has assisted many families with funeral services, hosted memorial gatherings remembering babies, and holds its annual Rock & Walk gathering the community and bereaved families to walk and raise funds together in honor of their baby to help future families.
