Welcome to the Rochester Area
Chapter of The Compassionate Friends 


About Our Chapter 
Since 1996 our Chapter has been here for bereaved parents and family members. The pain experienced after the death of a child is arguably the most severe grief you will ever experience. We know and understand this. Everyone here has been directly affected by the death of a child and can truly understand much of what you are feeling.

Chapter Offerings:

In addition to this web site, which provides information about chapter activities as well as other bereavement resources available on the web, our chapter of TCF offers the following:

Support and friendship to all bereaved parents, grandparents, and adult siblings.

Monthly meetings offering a small group discussion and a safe place to share your grief and your memories with others who understand.

Information about the grieving process through brochures, handouts, and a Lending Library of books, audiotapes, and videos. We also have a quarterly newsletter and a Facebook page for the latest news.

Yearly Memorial Event. The Worldwide Candle Lighting Ceremony is in December.
