The Compassionate Friends is a non-profit, self-help support
organization for families who are grieving the death of a child
of any age, from any cause. There are no dues or fees and all bereaved family members are welcome.
TCF exists to support and assist bereaved parents, siblings and other family members in the positive
resolution of their grief, and to foster their physical
and emotional health. Monthly chapter meetings offer
friendship, caring and a safe place to talk. Monthly
newsletters and caring friends offer telephone support.
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.
Houston Inner Loop Chapter meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month (except in December) at the First Unitarian Universalist Church, 5200 Fannin, Houston, Texas 77004, in the Fireside Room.
