Welcome to the Greater Providence Chapter of The Compassionate Friends (TCF), a national, nonprofit support organization that offers friendship, understanding, and hope to families who are grieving the death of a child of any age, from any cause.

The secret of TCF’s success is simple: As seasoned grievers reach out to the newly bereaved, energy that has been directed inward begins to flow outward and both are helped to heal. Our vision is that everyone who needs us will find us and everyone who finds us will be helped.

Our Chapter offers:

  • Monthly support group meetings
  • Quarterly newsletter
  • Resource library and literature on grieving
  • Annual Candle Lighting Ceremony the second Sunday in December
  • Remembrance Garden in downtown Providence

There is no religious affiliation and all are welcome.
