As well as, offering financial assistance for burial and memorial services helps when families need it during an incredibly challenging time. Furthermore, this nonprofit offers a sense of community, and empathy to all family members affected during their time of need. Allowing grieving families to connect with others who share similar experiences, has provided much needed comfort to grieving families.  In addition to this, the Tears Foundation promotes healing and awareness surrounding pregnancy and infant loss, emphasizing the importance of support networks and resources for those navigating the painful journey of loss.  www.thetearsfoundation.org
