emotional trauma and financial stress.  Nothing in life can ever prepare
you for such an event and financial distress is the last thing a widow(er) needs especially when caring for
children.  The Tim Stokes Foundation provides short-term financial assistance to cover basic needs such as monthly living expenses aswell as expenses for individual and/or group therapy for the surviving spouse and children.

The Tim Stokes Foundation is organized to be a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization to which contributions are tax deductible under federal law.
