HAND’s Annual Service of Remembrance

October is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month and each year HAND holds a Service of Remembrance in Northern California to provide families in the community with an opportunity to honor and celebrate their baby’s life.

The Service usually consists of music, parent poetry, a reading of our children’s names and keepsakes for families. Afterwards, there is a potluck which gives parents the chance to talk and spend time with other families who have experienced a similar loss.

HAND’s Holiday Craft Night

Families are invited to spend special evening crafting with us each December. HAND will provide craft materials for you to make a holiday keepsake or ornament to remember your angel child(ren) during the holidays. Coffee and beverages will be provided by HAND, and guests are welcome to bring a dessert or appetizer to share.
