We are a 501 (c)(3) education and advocacy organization run by an all volunteer board. We are not a funeral home nor offer funeral services, but can assist you with many of the questions and decisions you will have to make when planning a funeral.
We are not affiliated with the funeral industry or any religious groups.
We educate the public on their rights and options when planning for or purchasing funeral goods and services.
We encourage people to plan arrangements that are in keeping with their personal wishes and budget, and then share that information with their survivors.
