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.

The need is great in Massachusetts. There no limited government funds available to support bereaved families who need to make final arrangements for their baby and ongoing support to rebuild their lives. Together we can support these families and make a difference in Massachusetts.

In partnership with Dignity Memorial & Doane, Beal, and Ames Funeral Home, we are honored to bring this permanent memorial remembering our babies to the community!

You can have a baby’s name added to the monument by submitting the MAAngel of hope application
