Our mission to enable low-income bereaved families to secure services to comprehensively address their bereavement needs.
In 1997, 3ABF was incorporated as a faith-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in 1997 to provide bereavement support services for indigent and low-income families. Our founder, Michele Lara, began the original mission that continues today, "Assist, Arrange and Accompany". Specifically, to assist and accompany families through the process of making funeral and interment arrangements for their loved ones. Over the years, 3ABF has served almost 10,000 low-income and working poor families and has provided over $500,000 in financial aid and support services in the Houston Metropolitan Area.
