Funds for this program were provided, in part, by a Worthy Cause Grant from the Baton Rouge State Fair Foundation.

We are so very sorry for your loss and extend our deepest sympathies to you and your family.


 Please complete the Application for Assistance by clicking on the button below.  Once your application is received by our office, it will be submitted to our assistance evaluation committee.  A decision regarding your application will be relayed to you as quickly as possible.


Here are our guidelines for assistance:

  • One of the baby's parents MUST reside in the Greater Baton Rouge Area (see the list of parishes we serve by visiting the "About Us" tab).

  • The baby must have been under one year of age at the time of death.

  • The application must be filled out completely.

  • Assistance is subject to availability of funds and approval of application.


We hope that our assistance brings some measure of peace to your family.  Know that you are not alone - you are in our thoughts today and always.
