“Our primary focus is providing emotional support for those who are grieving the death of someone close,” says Annette March-Grier, President and Co-founder. “However, over the past year, Roberta’s House provided rental assistance, laptops, meals, food baskets and personal care items to our clients who needed support as they adjusted to a new normal without their loved ones.”

Roberta’s House does not charge their clients. They depend on contributions to keep their services free and accessible.

“Your gift will bring hope to a mother whose loss seems unbearable,” says March-Grier “Your donations will ensure that a child can find support and comfort from a peer—ensuring that they know they are not alone. Your partnership with Roberta’s House will help us heal our city.”
