We're sorry for the reason you're here, but we're glad you've found us.
The Compassionate Friends is an international self-help organization offering friendship, understanding, and hope to bereaved families (parents, grandparents, and siblings) who have experienced the death of a child from any cause and at any age. There is no religious affiliation and no individual membership fees or dues are charged.
Our purpose is to support and aid family members in their grief and to foster their physical and emotional health.
