The Compassionate Friends is a national nonprofit, self-help support organization offering friendship and understanding to bereaved parents and families. Our purpose is to promote and aid parents and families in the positive resolution of the grief experience upon the death of their child, and to foster the physical and emotional health of bereaved parents and surviving children. Some chapter meetings are in church facilities, but no religious creed or affiliation is involved.
We feel the pain of your loss and invite you to share your grief with us. We, too, have lost a child. We are the surviving parents, grandparents, siblings, and loved ones.
The purpose of this group is to provide support following the loss of a child or sibling. It's never too early and never too late to reach out. We are here, you do not have to walk alone through this journey.
