Our hearts welcome you.
As members, we are here to provide positive grief resolution after the death of a child. We welcome parents, family members and friends who are seeking support in this most difficult of times.
The Compassionate Friends (TCF) is an international organization with over 600 local chapters across the United States. It was founded in Coventry, England, in 1969, by Rev. Simon Stephens. When two young boys died within days of each other, Rev. Stephens brought the parents of these children together in hopes they could best support and understand each other through this painful loss. TCF's longevity is a testament to this form of parents helping parents.
