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.
