Honoring Memories, Cultivating Healing

"Creating Spaces of Remembrance for Our Littlest Angels"

The Nursery of Hope, a tender initiative by Briggs & Barrett Project, offers families a way to celebrate and remember infants who are no longer with us. Understanding the depth of loss that comes with the passing of a child, this program seeks to provide comfort, healing, and a means to honor their brief yet significant lives.

The Vision

Nursery of Hope embodies our commitment to supporting families through all aspects of their journey, including the profound grief that accompanies the loss of an infant. It's a sanctuary for parents and families to find solace, remember, and celebrate the lives of their children in meaningful ways.

Ways to Memorialize

Participate in a Memorial Project: Choose a memorial option that resonates with you, and let us help you make it a reality. Each project is a step towards healing, not only for grieving families but for our community as a whole.

As a living tribute to your child, we collaborate with the city to plant trees in local parks throughout Norfolk, NE. This program creates a lasting memorial that grows and flourishes, symbolizing the ongoing impact of your child's memory within our community.

Plant a Tree


For those who live beyond Norfolk, we offer to mail a FREE tree seedling to you, allowing you to plant a memorial tree in your own space, wherever you call home.

Tree Seedling Mailing


Contribute to the creation of a lasting memorial with a personalized brick at our new garden location. Each brick represents a child's memory, piecing together a mosaic of love and remembrance.

*Memorial bricks will be installed at our NEW Briggs & Barrett Garden, expecting to break ground summer of 2025.

Memorial Brick


Explore additional memorial options, including park benches and flower planters, each offering a unique way to honor your child's memory in the community.
