and Healing Request for Support 

The Mutual Aid Mourning & Healing Project offers assistance from death doulas/midwives, therapists, social workers & other healers, in addition to clergy who can facilitate memorial services via video conferencing and chat apps. This project was created by Chicago organizers, but the project’s services are available to anyone in the US. We have not received any requests from outside the US, but if we do, we will assist those folks too if we can. This assistance is not limited to COVID-19 related losses.
