The Compassionate Friends is a support group held on the first Tuesday of each month at the Caritas Service Center, West Street, Newton Park. TCF is originally founded by Rev Stephens from England in 1969. TCF offers friendship, understanding, and hope to bereaved parents, siblings, and grandparents. We have learned through our own experiences that the death of a child causes a pain that is best understood by others who have also experienced such a loss. We know that for some, expressing thoughts and feelings are integral to the healing process, and we provide a safe, supportive environment for such expression.
