Emma’s Footprints, a 501c3 non-profit organization, was founded to support families who have experienced pregnancy or infant loss. Our goal is to provide compassionate guidance and resources as families begin this difficult journey.
Emma’s Footprints, a 501c3 non-profit organization was founded on May 30, 2013 to provide direct services to families who experience a pregnancy or infant loss.
Tracy Dailey was eight months pregnant when she had the unsettling feeling that something wasn’t right. She called her doctor, who advised her to come in for a checkup immediately. During the sonogram, the doctor informed Tracy that there was no heartbeat and her baby had passed.
Emma Kathryn Dailey was born into heaven on May 30, 2007. Emma’s story is all too common in our community and around the world. Families deal with pregnancy and infant loss every day. For some families like the Daileys, the loss of a child is medically unexplained and heart piercing. For other families, the medical reasons for the loss of a child are understood but no less painful.
We understand that every family is different and the need will vary based on the situation. Some of our services include but are not limited to:
-Emotional support and guidance
-Financial assistance for burial or cremation
-Referrals and financial assistance for families to seek counseling
-Facilitate and/or provide financial assistance for memorialization (e.g. tree planting, garden, bench)
