For most of us, this has been a joyful week of holiday festivities spent with family and friends. But, for NechamaComfort’s families who have experienced pregnancy and infant loss, this “family-centered” time of celebration often brings pain and a sense of despair. NechamaComfort is there for them as they seek guidance to navigate these challenges.
2022 has been a year of great accomplishments for our work.
We now reach families on every continent except Antarctica and have increased the number of case managers, allowing us to continue to offer individual counseling to couples, extended family members, and communities. Our weekly on-line support groups help couples around the globe as do our monthly men’s group as well as a bi-monthly pregnancy after-loss group for expectant moms.
In 2023 we will be increasing our community awareness presentations across the United States and Israel and thank the Jewish communities in Hollywood, Florida, San Diego, and Memphis for their interest in spreading pregnancy and infant loss awareness.
NechamaComfort’s services to our clients are offered free of charge. It is only through your donations and grants we receive that we can continue to provide this critical support. At this year-end, we are happy to share that The Good People Fund has graciously offered a matching grant of $7500 to continue our work. The funds raised will ensure that we can continue our support of families and allow us to add vital office staff.
As you make your end-of-the-year contributions, we ask you to help the families who experience the trauma of pregnancy and infant loss. Your donation will help bring comfort to these families and allow them to continue their journey to a healthy and happy future.
