The Modesto Area Chapter
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.
Parents, grand parents and siblings are welcome. There is no religious affiliation. Compassionate friends is a self-help group. All the leaders are bereaved parents. We are a non-profit, non-denominational support group. No one is required to talk at a meeting. We understand how difficult it is to talk when our grief is fresh. If your child died a few weeks ago, or years ago, you are welcome.
We meet the second Monday night of each month.
2201 Morrill Rd.
(corner of Oakdale and Morrill Rd.)
On the month of your child’s birth, or your child’s death, feel free to bring a photo, or other items of your child’s to place on the table and share.
Our next meeting will be held on May 10th at 6:00pm. We will be meeting outdoors (weather permitting). We ask that you please wear a mask, bring a chair, and follow social distancing. For more information, see the flyer on the Events page.
