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.

We are partnering with Stillbirthday to host a hearts release. We will write names of the babies honored on tiny paper seeded hearts. We will be releasing the hearts along the creek so the seeds grow into flowers. Contact Paige Green for more information. (724) 961-9489.

October 15th Wave of Light
October 15, 2019
Time: 6 – 8 pm    
Location: 538 Park Ave Johnstown, Pennsylvania 15902

Wave of Light: National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day is observed annually across the world on October 15. It is a day of remembrance for pregnancy loss and infant death which includes, but is not limited to, miscarriage, stillbirth, SIDS or the death of a newborn.
We will be holding a short but sweet ceremony in which we will be allowing families to light a candle for the babies that are no longer with us. We will be placing hearts with your babies name on it if you wish, so please send me the names if you will be attending so that we can do so. If you cannot we will be lighting a large candle for those who cannot come in honor of your baby. Just please let us know ahead of time so I can include their name on a heart. However, we are hoping that you will be able to join us in making this wave of light bright for our babies. We will have some battery operated candles as well for the little ones if you choose to bring them. Candles will be lit by 7 pm.
