Who we serve

The need is great in Puerto Rico. 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 Puerto Rico.

The Puerto Rico Chapter of The TEARS Foundation has supported many families with emotional support, memorial gatherings, and one-on-one peer support to facilitate healing to bereaved families in Puerto Rico. Your support is needed, as collectively we can make a difference for families after the death of their precious child. 

UPCOMING EVENTS:
