You're Not Alone
For well over 50 years, the March Family has deeply cared for the community in which we serve. As we all walk boldly into the 21st century, the support groups, bereavement care workshops, educational conferences, as well as our traditional annual Memorial Day services will help families in the greater Baltimore area come to terms with loss.
Many of these events have long been a tradition of service. Others are innovative responses to current social trends or a reflection of existing needs of families in the Baltimore area. One such event is the Family Conference for Homicide Survivors, held each year in September. While this is a national day of mourning, for those lost in the events of 9/11; many families suffer the loss of homicide and lack the support of resources and help in getting resolution.
The March Family is also the founder and proud sponsor of Roberta’s House, a family grief support center in Baltimore on East North Avenue. It is there aspiration to mobilize the community to construct a dedicated center for bereavement support for families at the donated site of the first March Funeral Homes in1957. Roberta's House offer programs for children and families of all ages, the center conducts peer support groups for children and adults, educational workshops, volutunteer trainings and community outreach. The future center will in addition,provide a resource library a theatre for the arts, activity rooms and a fitness center for healthy ways of coping. Reaching out to the community with our heartfelt support has always been very important to the March Family.
