The Sadie Rose Foundation
Welcome to the Sadie Rose Foundation. We are an official non-profit 501(c)3 organization offering support to families and individuals who have experienced the death of a loved one. We are based in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.
Regardless of how long ago or recent your loss, we welcome you as strangers no longer, but fellow bereaved families coping shoulder-to-shoulder in a life we never imagined for ourselves.
We offer support and assistance to anyone, regardless of race, religion or reason for loss.
