The Compassionate Friends Fayetteville North Carolina Area Chapter
The mission of The Compassionate Friends: When a child dies, at any age, the family suffers terrible 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




The Compassionate Friends (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. All bereaved family members are welcome. Founded in England in 1969, TCF was established in the United States in 1972 with 501(c)(3) not-for-profit incorporation in 1978, under which provision the organization's more than 640 local chapters also operate. TCF operates as separate entities in at ​least 30 countries around the world.

Regular meetings of local chapters provide a caring environment in which bereaved parents, siblings, and grandparents can work through their grief with the help of others who have "been there." Monthly, more than 17,000 attend chapter meetings.


















We offer a safe place for bereaved parents, grandparents and siblings

to meet and talk freely about their children and their grief issues. No one

is required to speak, but non-judgmental listening is expected.

The meetings are open to all parents, grandparents, and adult siblings

who are grieving the death of a child. The Compassionate Friends has

no religious affiliation. There are no dues or fees. There is a free chapter

lending library and a free quarterly newsletter.
