This web site is for the support of those who have experienced the death of a child, a grandchild or sibling. If you are in that situation, we are here to help.
The Compassionate Friends is a nonprofit, self-help support organization for families who have experienced the death of a child of any age from any cause. There is no religious affiliation or membership requirements.
Our web site provides suggested reading, online resources, online newsletters and events and activities to help you in your grieving process. We offer twice monthly meetings where you can talk to other bereaved parents, grandparents and siblings. We offer a monthly mailed and online newsletter where you can receive messages, articles, poems and other helpful information. Family members are also able to share their feelings at meetings; in individual breakout sessions or in private or group get togethers. We also conduct annual memorial balloon releases and a ceremony of remembrance candle lighting service.
Our chapter has a unique affiliation with Lifetime Care here in Rochester. This affiliation provides us some financial support and excellent facilities for meetings and get togethers.
This site is dedicated to the memory of Jeffrey Michael Simon
and to the memories all of the children of the Rochester, NY Chapter of The Compassionate Friends
