Grief Support after the Death of a Child


This website is dedicated to the memory of all of our children.

 

The Mission of The Compassionate Friends is to assist families toward the positive resolution of grief following the death of a child of any age and to provide information to help others be supportive.

We are a national nonprofit, self-help organization that offers friendship, understanding and hope to bereaved parents, grandparents and siblings. Our meetings are open to all family members who are grieving the death of a child. There is no religious affiliation and no dues or fees.

WE NEED NOT WALK ALONE 

WE ARE THE COMPASSIONATE FRIENDS

MESSAGE on COVID-19

Since April 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our chapter has been holding bi-monthly online video meetings in lieu of our in-person chapter meetings.  As of January 2021, we added one in-person meeting per month to our meeting schedule.  The in-person meetings are held on the 4th Wednesday of each month and are limited to 15 participants.  We will continue to hold our bi-monthly online video meetings on the first Monday and the third Wednesday of each month.

The May online video meetings will be held at 7:30 PM on Monday, May 3rd and Wednesday, May 19th.  The in-person meeting will be held at 7:00 PM on Wednesday, May 26th.  COVID guidelines will be followed at the in-person meetings, including wearing masks and keeping socially distant.  An email invitation will be sent to members prior to each meeting.  You may also request an invitation by emailing tcfnoshoreconnect@gmail.com to let us know that you would like to participate.

 

In addition to our online chapter meetings, other support options are listed below:

 

1) TCF Live Chats:  The National TCF website offers scheduled Live Chat sessions on different days and with different topics.  The details can be found here:  National TCF Live Chat Schedule

 

2) Private Facebook Groups:  TCF offers several private Facebook groups facilitated by bereaved parents, grandparents or siblings. They can be accessed here:  TCF Private Facebook Groups

 

3) TCF North Shore-Boston Facebook Page:  Our chapter has its own Facebook page that is active with members from our chapter. You can access it here:  TCF North Shore-Boston Facebook Page
