About the organizers:

March Funeral Homes are dedicated to the value of compassionate funeral service and believe their first responsibility is to the families they serve. They provide the highest level of care and compassion to families in the Baltimore and surrounding communities, allowing them to customize a funeral ceremony or memorial tribute that truly captures their loved one's memory.

Roberta's House is a safe place where children, teens and adults discover that they are not alone in their grief. Children with their families share their feelings, memories and experiences in an atmosphere of acceptance with the love and support of trained volunteers. This mission of Roberta's House is to provide a safe place and resource in the community to promote recovery and healing from the loss of a loved one; addressing grief as a public healthy preventative service.

What's Your Grief is a Baltimore-based organization providing online support to individuals grieving. Their mission is to promote grief education, exploration, and expression in both practical and creative ways. We aim to provide the public with education that reaches beyond generalization, practical and specific tools for coping, modes of self-exploration and self-express that suit all types of thinkers and doers, ways to honor and remember deceased loved ones, and a supportive grief community.
