The volunteers of HAND of the Peninsula provide peer support and information concerning pregnancy loss and perinatal death to parents, their relatives, and friends during the normal mourning following miscarriage, genetic abortion, stillbirth, or newborn death of their babies. There are no fees for these services. HAND of the Peninsula relies entirely on grants and donations to support its programs.
HAND of the Peninsula is grateful for all donations. Without these contributions, it would be impossible to offer the breadth of services and the depth of support that we now provide to grieving parents and their loved ones. The generosity of those who have contributed to HAND of the Peninsula has allowed us to provide information and support to over one thousand bereaved families at what has very often been the most difficult time in their lives.
HAND of the Peninsula gratefully acknowledges the support of the community. Meeting space is provided free of charge through an in-kind contribution by the Mills Health Center in San Mateo, California. In the past many HAND programs have been funded by the Sequoia Health Care District. Our organization has also received grants from the Kenneth Rainin Foundation, the Silicon Valley Community Foundation, the Woodlawn Foundation, and the Sand Hill Foundation.
