The Compassionate Friends Is Here For You
The Compassionate Friends Mission Statement
When a child dies, at any age, the family suffers intense pain and may feel hopeless and isolated. The Compassionate Friends provides highly personal comfort, hope, and support to every family experiencing the death of a son or a daughter, a brother or a sister, or a grandchild, and helps others better assist the grieving family.
The Compassionate Friends 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. There is
no religious affiliation. 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.
