The Finley Project's
7-Part Holistic Healing Program
Picking up the phone and making a call to plan her child’s funeral is a task most grieving mothers cannot fathom. The Finley Project can provide AID for a mother who needs help making that phone call and organizing funeral arrangements.

Hot meals, a stocked refrigerator, food to feed a grieving mother and her family without having to do much, is what a mother needs after infant loss. The Finley Project can help provide NOURISHMENT to a mother and her family while she focuses on healing.
While a mother grieves, it's all too common for the laundry to pile up, the dishes to remain dirty and the dust to build up around her home. The Finley Project can provide house cleaning services to CLEANSE her home from the external chaos while she focuses on making sense of the internal one.
While she grieves, a mother is likely to experience anxiety, sleepless nights, elevated blood pressure, lower levels of endorphins and happiness hormones, and a higher risk for infection. The Finley Project can provide RESTORATION by coordinating massage therapy sessions during the healing process.

Talking about losing a child can be difficult for a grieving mom. She needs other mothers who understand her pain and her unique journey in grief. The Finley Project can help a mom find FELLOWSHIP through support groups in her area.
Overcome with grief, mothers experience severe emotional trauma where even simple day-to-day tasks can be stressful and overwhelming. Some mothers even lose the will to live. The Finley Project can place mothers with a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) who can provide COUNSEL while she grieves.
The grief journey can feel like a long and lonely road for a mother who has lost her baby, but it doesn't have to. The Finley Project can provide SUPPORT from the moment a mother joins the program through a Volunteer Support Coordinator that will help her through the holistic program daily, monthly and yearly, for up to five years.
