Background


The Compassionate Friends (TCF) is a national nonprofit, self-help support organization which offers friendship and understanding to families who are grieving the death of a child of any age, from any cause. TCF has learned that the death of a child causes a pain that can best be understood fully by another bereaved parent.

Knowing that all need love and support, we reach out as our own grief subsides, to those who still feel alone and abandoned.

TCF also provides information and education on familial grief to the community.

TCF was founded in 1969. There is no religious affiliation. It is non-sectarian and multicultural.

There are no membership fees or dues, and all bereaved family members are welcome.

The secret of The Compassionate Friends' 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.
