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 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. 

If you would like to volunteer with the Florida chapter fill out this volunteer application form and someone will be in contact with you shortly.
