Yatooma's Foundation for the Kids
Bloomfield Hills, Michigan
Bringing Tenderness To Tragedy and turning tragedy to triumph for the families of kids who have lost a parent by providing practical, professional, and personal assistance at each stage of the grieving and recovery process. This Foundation is dedicated in honor and loving memory of Manuel S. Yatooma (1947-1993).
The sudden loss of a parent triggers a broad range of family crises that may take years to surmount. Through partnerships with business professionals and social service organizations, Yatooma's Foundation For The Kids assembles a team of volunteers to meet each family's unique needs throughout each phase of their grieving and recovery process.
Who We Are:
Yatooma's Foundation For The Kids is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing guidance, stability, and financial assistance to families with children who have suddenly lost one or both parents. This all-too-common tragedy transcends the lines of race, religion, and status and often forces children to prematurely assume the burden of adult responsibility.
In addition to immediate financial resources for living expenses, Yatooma's Foundation For The Kids attempts to provide at least some semblance of the parent's mentoring hand, now reduced to memories and photographs.
What We Do:
Yatooma's Foundation For The Kids provides grief-counseling, mentoring, and assistance in avoiding self-destructive crutches often used to fill the loss of a parent. To the surviving parent, we also provide professional, legal, and accounting assistance necessitated by the loss of a spouse, as well as career planning, family budget development, and financial assistance.
Yatooma's Foundation For The Kids cannot replace a lost parent. No one can. But we are committed to doing all that we can to minimize the hurt and bring tenderness to tragedy.
