Halos Early Loss Project (H.E.L.P.)
HELP is essential to the validity, respect, and honored life of early loss (under 20 weeks of gestation) in our community, how a mother will thrive mentally and emotionally after loss, and to her support system and how they value life in its most precious and fragile state.

We are currently in the process of creating Lullabye Lane in conjuction with the City of New Richmond, where we will soon be able to offer cemetery plots for these babies,. We have already secured the transportation and safe keeping of these fragile lives until cremation or burial, along with securing our partnership with the hospital and funeral home.

Miscarriage Kit

This miscarriage kit is to be used after you have found that your baby has died but you have not delivered yet.

"Little Angel" Healing Boxes

(for families that have lost a baby from 15 Weeks Gestation - infant)


-offered at local area hospitals..


-can also be brought to any local home or funeral home with just a phone call to us.


*These boxes have a few time sensitive materials in them, so we encourage a call as soon as possible.

Hand & Foot Molds

We are able to create beautiful hand a foot molds at the funeral home. This must happen before cremation or burial.

LITE REFRESHMENTS 

*Currently unavailable Due to Covid-19*

With the help of our amazing volunteers and community we are able to provide bars/cookies for your child's memorial service.

Unique Personal Touches

We encourage families to personalize their child's memorial service with their own unique touches.

Aftercare Support Resources

Grief Support Companion:

A Grief Support Companion is a bereaved parent who is wanting to provide informal support and friendship to another more recently bereaved parent. It offers you and another parent an opportunity to share your grief and experiences together, to 'walk alongside' one another and in this way be a listening ear and an understanding 'friend'. Halos will initially get you connected and then the contact may be by phone, in person, email and/or FaceTime, whatever suits you both.

Virtual Support Sessions
Providing bereaved parents with a safe place to connect with other bereaved parents from the comfort of their own home.

Sessions are led by Joy Salano, MA LPC, of Family Therapy Associates in New Richmond.


Sessions are conducted in a group of 6 and will take place on an encrypted, HIPPA approved link.

Memorial Stone Assistance:

We work closely with Melgard Monument for memorial stones. Please mention you were referred by Halos if you choose to work with them for your child's memorial marker. Once you have paid in full, we are able to give you 10% back.
