Crisis Relief Resources
The COVID-19 Crisis Response Funds also allowed for the creation and distribution of a free community resource titled Grieving Alone & Together written by Dr. Sara Murphy and created in partnership with the National Funeral Directors Association and RemberingALife.com
As the pandemic raged into the second half of 2020 and burnout and fatigue set in with funeral directors, the funds from the Crisis Fund, in part, allowed the Foundation to commission and create a self-care handbook titled Caring for Families & Caring for Yourself written by Dr. Alan Wolfelt, which focuses on the specific needs and experiences of funeral directors.
Both of these resources are available free of charge, simply pay shipping.
The Foundation’s relief efforts carry on into 2021. We stand at the ready to answer the profession’s call for assistance, just as funeral directors and allied professionals answered our call to give.
