The Compassionate Friends

The Compassionate Friends, TCF (TCF) is a national nonprofit, self-help support organization offering friendship, understanding, and hope to families grieving the death of a child of any age, from any cause. There is no religious affiliation and no individual membership fees or dues are charged (we are already paying the highest dues any organization could possibly have). All bereaved family members are welcome. Founded in England in 1969, TCF was established in the United States in 1972, with 501©(3) not-for-profit incorporation in 1978, under which provision the organization’s nearly 600 local chapters also operate. TCF operates as separate entities in at least 30 countries around the world. Web: www.compassionatefriends.org
