Resources: How You Can Help

HAND is a California non-profit agency run entirely by volunteers: Parents, professionals and supportive members of the community. There are many ways YOU CAN help: program services, support services, and fundraising.

Program volunteers help bereaved families by providing telephone support, hospital visitations and support group staffing. HAND also offers a speakers bureau that provides outreach and professional education for healthcare providers, mental health workers, members of the clergy, and other groups interested in learning how to better support families in grief. Training is provided.

Support service volunteers help production, the Service of Remembrance, serve on our Board of Directors, Professional Advisory Board, and help with fundraising, grant writing and committee work.

You can also support HAND with tax-deductable donations in any amount. Also as through the United Way, company matching, stock donations and fundraising events.

Donations are publicly noted in our newsletter.
