We are glad you are here, but sorry for the reason.

The mission of The Compassionate Friends is to assist families  in the positive resolution of grief following the death of a child, sibling, or grandchild of ANY age and to provide information to help others be supportive. 

You need not walk alone through your grief journey.

We are The Compassionate Friends and are here to walk with you.
