PITTER PATTER BABIES MATTER

FUNERAL SERVICES

Funeral homes that collaborate with Heaven Sent, Corp. offer no cost to low cost funerals to mothers who have lost their babies pre-term through natural causes and term babies prior to their first birthday. Below you will find a brief description of the service types each individual funeral home may offer.

 

MINIMAL SERVICES
The death care business has over looked the need for cost free and low cost minimal burial and cremation services for families suffering natural pre-term and infant losses prior to the baby's first birthday. Heaven Sent, Corp has partnered with funeral homes across America to bring cost free and low cost burials and cremations to these suffering families.

Funeral homes qualifying for this program offer these burials and cremations out of the tenderness's within their hearts. Heaven Sent, Corp. does not ask funeral homes to lose revenue when providing these services. We merely ask them to forego making revenue when providing these services to the survivors of such tragic loss.

The services offered under the Heaven Sent, Corp. concept are minimal services and only provide the bare minimum in services and merchandise necessary to accomplish burial or cremation. As the funeral home is not making revenue on these minimal services, it is likely that these services will be scheduled at the convenience of the funeral home to fit within their off or non-peek hours and days.

Families who desire additional or full service funerals or cremations will most likely be charged the customary fees for all services and merchandise provided.

MINIMAL BURIAL SERVICES

Minimal burial services provide only the bare minimum services necessary to accomplish burial of your infant child. These services are provided out of tender mercy by funeral homes who mourn the loss of babies. Most likely, these services will be provided at the lowest possible rate for the funeral home to break even on their merchandise and employee expenses. Additionally, the funeral home will schedule your services at their convenience so that your services do not interfere with the normal profit making operations of the funeral home. If you require services other than those necessary to accomplish burial, or if you would like to schedule your services at peek hours, you will most likely receive an invoice for full charges.
