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.

 

MAY MONTHLY SUPPORT GROUP MEETING INFORMATION

(all monthly meetings are held on the third Tuesday, except in December when
the Annual Candle Lighting Ceremony is held on the second Sunday at 7:00 p.m.)

NOTE: Our May support group meeting will not be held on Tuesday, May 17th.
Instead we will have our Remembrance Release and Pot Luck dinner on

Our TCF Inner Loop Chapter has two opportunities each year for members and their families to participate in remembrance ceremonies. In addition to the December 11th Candle Lighting Ceremony, the May Remembrance Ceremony/Pot Luck Dinner is scheduled May 15th (Note that we will not meet on the third Tuesday in May – the 17th – for our regular meeting). Butterflies will be supplied, however, feel free to bring a balloon to release. Please bring a snack/dish to share (with serving utensils). Cups, plates, napkins, cutlery, drinks and ice will be provided.

Family members and friends are welcome to attend.
