Pennsylvania

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.

Who we serve

The need is great in the state of Pennsylvania. 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 Pennsylvania.

The Pennsylvania 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.

 

Help your Community

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

Empty Chair Photo Sessions
Date:
June 30, 2019
Time: 10 am     
Location: Pine Ridge Park   

We want to honor bereaved families by giving them the chance to have photos taken with our “empty chair” which represents the  missing piece of their family. Families are encouraged to bring something that reminds them of their baby to have in the photos. Sessions will last 20 minutes. Once the photos are edited each family will receive them in an email for printing. The cost is a $20 donation going to The TEARS Foundation.
