Mirabel Mirabel Foundation

The tragedy of drug‐related deaths is compounded by the children left behind. Children without family may find themselves in foster care, sometimes separated from their siblings. Many go into the care of extended family (kinship care), usually with elderly grandparents who have little or no financial or social support. These are Mirabel children. And it’s our determined focus to provide them with all the emotional and practical support they need to have the most normal childhood possible.
