What is a "Comfort Kit"?
Comfort Kits are thoughtfully designed packages for newly bereaved families in Massachusetts who have experienced pregnancy or infant loss. Each Comfort Kit includes hand painted ornaments lovingly created by volunteers, additional remembrance gifts like tealight candles and prints, as well as grief resources such as mini journals and tissue packs.
We've worked incredibly hard to think of special items to include in our kits and are proud to offer these to our bereaved families in their time of need after losing a baby. Comfort Kits are currently free of charge due to generous donations we have received. A Comfort Kit is given to a family should they meet with a peer companion in our Center for Child Loss in Northborough, Massachusetts or a kit can be shipped to a family currently living in Massachusetts.
To request a Comfort Kit, please submit this form.
(Please note there may be a waiting list.)
