Xander understands that it hurts enough to lose a child, but how to handle final arrangements and expenses should not. If a family cannot afford the total cost of a funeral and or burial, Xander is there to help. Xander works with local funeral directors on behalf of the family to remove any barriers in honoring children with a final expression of love. Xander also understands that grief is a process and that we all grieve at our own pace.
When a family faces such an unspeakable trauma, whether by natural causes, accident, homicide or suicide, Xander steps in to assist families during phases of this difficult time.
Xander is a newer organization and seeking to add $5,000 to our funding base to allow us to achieve the specific vision and mission of our organization and create other positive impacts on the community. Due to COVID-19, many have lost their jobs and many families who have lost a child are facing a lack of funds to have the basic right to a proper funeral and burial for their child.

Our Mission: To support, advocate and facilitate a pathway to healing for Wayne County, Michigan families dealing with the trauma of child death, in alliance with a network of community partners and resources.
