We are a bereaved parents grief support group.  We also serve those that lost a sibling or grandchild.

The mission of The Compassionate Friends: 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 vision of The Compassionate Friends is that everyone who needs us will find us and everyone who finds us will be helped.


We meet monthly on the second Thursday of each month.
