KIMBERLY NEAL FAMILY EMPOWERMENT FUND

Starting this July

The Kimberly Neal Family Empowerment Fund is used to assist families in receiving support following the loss of a family member to suicide.

 

This fund provides access to five grief counseling sessions with a licensed therapist (in-person or telehealth) for group and/or individual sessions. It also includes $1,500 for costs associated with the loss, or support services needed.

 

Families will also get matched with a BFY advocate who can help identify resources within their community to build long-lasting relationships to create a community of support. 

 

Counseling Costs - $6,000

Additional Support Funds - $1,500

Three recipients are chosen two times per year.

Families are nominated or can nominate themselves. They must have lost a loved one within the last 12 months and they will go through an interview process.
