The Compassionate Friends is an organization, which offers friendship and understanding to bereaved parents, grandparents and siblings. The purpose of this group is to promote a positive resolution of grief by our willingness to listen and share through our chapter programs. The group provides someone to talk to, a listener who understands. We want to stress that everything that is discussed at the meeting and who attended the meeting is kept in strictest confidence. This allows our families to speak freely. All the people involved are parents who have experienced the death of a child.
