Since 2004, Sufficient Grace Ministries for Women, Inc. has provided support and resources for families walking through the loss of a pregnancy or infant loss at no cost to families. We have walked with thousands of families worldwide and in-person, sending our specially designed Dreams of You Comfort Packages to about 700 families per year. Below we've outlined more details about our services. As we have grown, it now costs SGM about $10,000 per month to provide this unparalleled perinatal hospice and bereavement support to grieving parents throughout the state of Ohio and world-wide. This current campaign, the Art Van Charity Challenge, is a contest to see which charity can raise the most funds for their program. The winner receives a large grant (about $100,000). This would help so many families we currently serve, and would grow our resources to help so many more in need!

One in every four pregnancies ends in loss. Thousands of families are affected each year, and it is often difficult for grieving parents to find the resources, support, and validation needed to help them cope with their grief or to plan for a baby whose life will likely be brief. Evidence-based studies tell us that having options, support, and resources helps empower families facing perinatal loss to make decisions for their time with their baby and in turn many regrets that can complicate grief are alleviated, offering a more conducing healing experience. The SGM Perinatal Hospice and Bereavement Services program helps equip families with the support they need to navigate through these difficult circumstances and also provides much-needed compassionate support training to birth professionals throughout the United States.
