The mission of The Compassionate Friends is to assist families
toward the positive resolution of grief following the death
of a child of any age and to provide information to help others
The Compassionate Friends is a national nonprofit, self-help
support organization that offers friendship, understanding,
and hope to bereaved parents, grandparents and siblings. There
is no religious affiliation and there are no membership dues
The secret of TCF's success is simple: As seasoned grievers
reach out to the newly bereaved, energy that has been directed
inward begins to flow outward and both are helped to heal.
The vision of The Compassionate Friends is that everyone who
needs us will find us and everyone who finds us will be helped.
