In addition to compassionately serving families during their time of need, the professionals at Riverside Memorial Chapel demonstrate an ongoing commitment to the community. We proudly sponsor a number of free community outreach programs designed to keep families safe and honor those who serve.
Keeping Families Safe
Each year, more than 58,000 children are abducted by strangers. To help keep children safe and out of harm's way, we offer Dignity Memorial Escape School®, an abduction-prevention program that teaches children and parents simple yet effective safety techniques in an entertaining and non-threatening manner.
To help keep older adults safe, Riverside Memorial Chapel sponsors a unique and long-term safety program known as Dignity Memorial Smart & Safe Living®. This program empowers older adults by discussing how simple strategies can be used to increase personal safety.
Honoring Those Who Serve
In recognition of the courage and selflessness of those who serve the public, we offer the Dignity Memorial Public Servants Program. This program provides dignified and honorable burials, at no cost, for career and volunteer law enforcement officers and firefighters who fall in the line of duty.
Because many families will never travel to the nation's capital to see the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, we created the Dignity Memorial® Vietnam Wall. This 240 foot traveling ¾-scale replica of the original is dedicated to all Americans who served in Vietnam and honors all servicemen and women of the U.S. military forces.
