Helping bereaved families honor the life of a child

We seek to compassionately lift a financial burden from families who have lost a child, and offer comprehensive bereavement care in the form of grief support groups and peer companions.

Supporting You & Your Family

Program - Loss of Child

We are so sorry for your loss, and we want you to know that you are not alone. We invite you to connect with us and join our community of support as we remember our precious babies who left us too soon. If you need someone to talk to for emotional support or financial help with funeral costs, please fill out our online application form and we will get in touch with you as soon as possible.

Angel of Hope

The monument is an everlasting memorial for babies gone too soon due to miscarriage, stillbirth, or infant death. It features a 5 foot tall angel holding a baby in the center and a butterfly wing monument on each side of her. The butterfly wings are engraved with the names of babies who are loved and remembered, and benches are placed at the site so visitors can have a quiet place to reflect and honor the lives of these babies. 

Emotional Support

We know that losing a child is one of the most painful experiences anyone can go through. It can feel like you have been torn apart, robbed, or left with despair that no one understands. You don’t have to face this alone. Tears has trained volunteers who are ready to support you emotionally and walk with you on your grief journey. They are compassionate and caring people who have been where you are and who can offer you comfort and hope.

We have created a safe and comforting place for bereaved families, professionals and community members to receive compassionate support. Our goal is to build a caring community to help families who have lost a child on their journey toward healing. We provide education and resources for ongoing bereavement care and overall wellness.

The TEARS Foundation has helped thousands of families in need with financial assistance for funeral expenses. We are so sorry for your loss, and we want to support you in this difficult time. If you need financial help, please fill out our online application form and we will get in touch with you within 48 hours.
