Our Work

Our Work

Our primary work is to provide financial assistance to families who have lost children but are unable to pay for cremation. Working with funeral homes, we cover the cost of cremation. We have received official permission from the City of Winston-Salem to open a new burial ground for those who do not have a place for burial. We also claim all infants who die but remain unclaimed by their family. They will receive a proper requiem and burial in our churchyard. 

In the 2018 we plan to establish a burial yard and shrine for those supported by this ministry and for all babies and children who have been lost to death, miscarriage, and abortion. 

Our current ministry partners are:

  • Forsyth Medical Center
  • Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center
  • Hayworth-Miller Funeral Home

Since December 2016
