Bereavement Trust Fund
The reality we face in the disability community is that of untimely death. Many families spend a lot of time in hospitals praying for their children and enduring heart-wrenching, never-ending medical crises. Sometimes, the most skilled doctors are not enough.
Most life insurance carriers will not provide policies for children with "pre-existing conditions". That leaves many families in horrible financial strain at an incredibly painful time to even pay for a funeral, much less emotionally process the loss of their child.
Our Bereavement Trust Fund is designed to have funds available to families who lose their children suddenly due to medical crisis or accident. Funds can be contributed to A Mother's Rest as a tax deductible donation, either towards a general fund or to a specific family we post in need of help. Funds will be paid directly to the funeral home towards the total costs of the service/burial/cremation etc.
