Are you a home funeral guide?

Hear from the gatekeepers that can make your work easier (or harder), as they discuss how they can work with you and your community. Take your home funeral practice up a notch. 

Are home funerals new to you?

Over half of those who came to our last conference attended for the first time! This event is the perfect place to get your start in a community who is here to connect with and support one another. You’ll learn new skills, gain confidence, and make great friends and associates.

Do you really need to connect with others who do this challenging work, often alone in remote areas?

If you’ve joined us in the past, then you know the deep ties that are formed and the lessons learned. If you haven’t been to a NHFA conference before, then come! All kinds of goodness are here for you.

Are you with Hospice, a hospital, or a Funeral Director who wants to learn more about home funerals?

Learn about the legalities, what families are asking for today, and how home funeral guides and you can work together to support families.

Join your Home Funeral Community September 22-24, 2017 at the Pearlstone Center near to WA DC.
