For families in Upstate NY
(Albany, Schenectady, Troy, Saratoga and surrounding areas)
Ohana Foundation provides assistance to families who are experiencing the unexpected planning of a funeral for their precious baby. We believe each family should be able to honor their baby the way they want, regardless of their financial situation.
*Financial assistance must be applied for through a funeral director. Gift amount is reflective of financial need.
There is no gestation minimum or infant age maximum. Each application is considered on an individual basis.

Ohana Foundation is proud of our *free* unique programs that support bereaved families throughout the year.
Parents can choose which program they feel most comfortable taking part in or do them all! Each one involves honoring the baby that was lost and forming connections with other bereaved families in the area.
Current Remembrance Programs:
- Mother's Day Gift/Healing Event
- October 15th Candle Lighting
- Personalized Holiday Ornament
Annual sign-up for each, individual gift or event is required. Sign-ups starts 6-8 weeks in advance. Please follow us on Facebook for the most up to date sign-up announcements. @TheOhanaFoundation
Our Remembrance Programs are for anyone in the Capital Region of Albany who has lost a baby at any gestation or infant age.
