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.’
As of December 2017, the Alaska Chapter of The TEARS Foundation has supported hundreds of families through our programs. Many have received emotional support, financial assistance, and attended our annual Rock & Walk where the community and bereaved families walk and raise funds together in honor of babies, never forgotten. As we continue to expand across the state, we invite you to partner with us, because together we can make a difference.
Who we serve
We are able to provide services to all bereaved families in Alaska. The state of Alaska’s infant death rate is 13.8% higher than the average for the lower 48 states and ranks 15th in the nation overall. There are no government funds available to support bereaved families with ongoing support to rebuild their lives, and the need is great.
Help your Community
Anyone who is interested in supporting bereaved families in Alaska is welcome and encouraged to attend one of these upcoming events, or to apply to become a VolunTEAR with this form.
