Halos of the St. Croix Valley is a recognized 501(c)(3)non-profit foundation in the State of Wisconsin that provides support to families grieving the loss of a child.
During our support families are offered many resources, to help guide them through the decisions they are faced with. We are here to help them plan a service for their child, and stand by them to support them with emotional healing and a connection to other parents trying to find hope and healing. Some of our resources begin at the hospital for families facing the loss of a baby. They are given our Little Angel Healing Baskets that contain many treasured mementos for their time with their child, along with our information to connect with them immediately and provide memorial photography. Families are also provided our information by law enforcement, funeral directors, medical examiner or friends and family. We are then able to connect with them as soon as we hear from them. We will walk through everything with these families and guide them through planning their child's service to assisting with financial support by purchasing an urn or casket, providing burial or cremation, casket spray or urn arrangement, luncheons, unique guest book options, balloon or butterfly releases, and many special touches that really remind them of their child such as our memorial cards which are designed and personalized for each child on beautiful card stock by our volunteer local graphic designer and printed by our local printer. We will also go into the funeral homes and take castings of hands and feet of children for parents to have lasting memories of their children. We also check in with families as time goes by, and together we help them honor their child. We assist with counseling, headstones, and so much more. All of our support resources are FREE of charge, we never turn a family away, if we have to work harder to make something happen, we do it.
We are a team of two that work daily to run Halos, and many many wonderful volunteers that give so much of their time to help us provide that support.
We are funded solely on support from our community through donations. We have helped hundreds of families since 2011, and will continue to carry them in our hearts forever. We are a family and we are truly grateful to be able to be here for each and every parent that turns to us.
