When a child dies, families often encounter a significant financial burden. Approximately 50% of the families who experience the death of a child at Children’s of Alabama do not have the resources to pay for burial or cremation. Through Partnership in Caring, qualifying families receive financial assistance and/or a gravesite. This program is made possible through generous donations from private and corporate donors and institutionally budgeted funds. Partnership in Caring has time and time again, “made a way where there was no way” when families are faced with the death of a child.
For information on being a Partnership in Caring donor, contact Herb Robertson, Director of Pastoral Care at Herb.Robertson@childrensAL.org or 205-638-9090.
