Florida TEARS Chapter

There are over 2,900 infant deaths in Florida each year. With your help TEARS can lift a financial burden from these newly bereaved families by providing financial assistance to help pay for their baby’s funeral expenses. TEARS also offers free ongoing emotional support in the form of support groups, online support and bereavement resources. If you would like support, click here for more information.


Emotional Support Meetings - Emotional Support meetings are open discussion support groups. Any bereaved parent is welcome to drop in.

Come and join us on Saturday February 11 for our first quarterly sibling play date! This event is to gather all siblings together who have lost a sibling.
