Who We Are
Remembering Cherubs is a nonprofit resource center for those who have experienced pregnancy loss in Detroit and southeast Michigan.
What We Do
As many as half of all pregnancies end in loss. Yet, there is a stunning lack of resources to guide parents through grief or a clear path toward healing.
The few available resources are often scattered and hard to find. This unfortunate gap in support can leave many feeling lost and isolated and may lead to struggles with stress, anxiety, and even physical health issues.
We want to change that.
Remembering Cherubs brings together a diverse range of educational, emotional, and financial support resources into one convenient space. We aim to remove barriers to accessing support through partnerships and collaborations with community organizations.

Mission, Vision & Values
Mission statement: to provide support, guidance, and education to parents their supporters and providers following pregnancy loss.
Vision statement: to work closely with medical and health professionals to establish care plans, founded on our core values of Support, Guidance and Education, that individuals and families can follow independently or in concert with a health professional.
We come from various backgrounds, cultures, and perspectives and believe our best work happens when we identify and eliminate barriers to ensure our voices are heard and everyone feels they belong. We commit to Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion in the programs and services we offer and of the individuals that run our organization.

Research has shown that taking even a few moments to speak intentional affirmations daily can profoundly affect self-healing, happiness, and mental health.
