Your generous contribution will fund our mission.
The Mary Claire Foundation began after Jaime Nehnevajsa-Friedl’s 10-year-old daughter, Mary Claire, passed away following a brief illness. Jaime quickly realized that there were no local support centers that addressed the holistic needs of parents who’d lost a child. Today, the Foundation is working toward an ultimate goal to create a space in the Pittsburgh area where grieving parents can receive support services that address their emotional, physical, and psychological well-being. As The Mary Claire Foundation works toward that goal, it is pleased to offer need-based scholarships for grieving parents to attend retreats that will provide assistance as they walk the path toward healing. The retreats are organized by nonprofit organizations that specialize in grief counseling.
Thank you for your support and contribution!
