RESOURCES

Online resources, support and connection for grieving parents and families.

Funeral Cost Assistance

Final Farewell
Final Farewell helps families provide an affordable funeral for a loved child.  We provide financial assistance, advice and guidance.  We’ve helped families from all religions and backgrounds. Your donation enables us to offer the enormous gift of a decent burial and a proper good-bye.

Tears Foundation
The TEARS Foundation seeks to compassionately lift a financial burden from families who have lost a child by providing funds to assist with the cost of burial or cremation services.  We also offer parents comprehensive bereavement care in the form of grief support groups and peer companions.

Grief Support

Brief Encounters
Brief Encounters is a nonprofit, nonsectarian group for parents whose babies have died before, during, or after birth. Brief Encounters provides meetings in the greater Portland, Oregon area and local phone support. At informal, mutually supportive meetings, bereaved parents and their families share their stories, discuss issues that arise around pregnancy and infant loss, and remember their children. Through talking or just listening, we learn what grief is and how, through understanding and caring, we heal.

Compassionate Friends
When a child dies, at any age, the family suffers intense pain and may feel hopeless and isolated. The Compassionate Friends provides highly personal comfort, hope, and support to every family experiencing the death of a son or a daughter, a brother or a sister, or a grandchild, and helps others better assist the grieving family

Seattle Children’s Journey’s Program
The Journey Program is for any family who has experienced the death of a child. It provides support to help families cope with death, loss, and the grieving process.

SUDC Foundation
The SUDC Foundation supports awareness, advocates for research, and supports those affected by sudden unexpected or unexplained death in childhood.

Grief Support for Surviving Siblings

Dougy Center
The Dougy Center provides support in a safe place where children, teens, young adults, and their families grieving a death can share their experiences. They provide support and training locally, nationally, and internationally to individuals and organizations seeking to assist children in grief.

Eluna
Eluna supports children and families impacted by grief or addiction. Their innovative resources and programs address the critical needs of children experiencing powerful, overwhelming and often confusing emotions associated with the death of someone close to them or substance abuse in their family. No child should have to face these struggles alone, and their unique programs bring kids together to ease their pain and provide the tools to help restore hope.

Peace of Mind

Knox Blocks
Since launching in April of 2017 , Knox Blocks has been providing the Owlet Smart Socks to families in need across the country. The Owlet tracks infant heart rate and oxygen levels while they sleep. If either level goes outside of a normal range, caregivers and parents are alerted. The purpose of the Owlet is to deliver the right information at the right time, giving the chance to intervene and possibly save the life of a little one.
