New Bereavement Group Remembers Children Who Died

Bereaved families that have experienced the death of a child now have an opportunity to meet with others on a regular basis who have endured similar tragedies. The Detroit Chapter of The Compassionate Friends (TCF), a national self-help organization for families that have had a child die, will hold its first monthly meeting Tuesday, February 3 at 7:00 p.m. at New Greater Oregon St. John Missionary Baptist Church, 8010 Manor Street in Detroit. Meetings will be held each month on the first Tuesday of the month at the same time and location.

Chapters welcome immediate family members to attend including siblings age 16 and up. Meetings are for all families regardless of race, religious orientation, economic background, or the cause and age of the child at death, from pre-birth up.

Meetings last two hours. The first hour, those attending will be able to discuss what happened to their child or anything related to their grief. The second hour is generally reserved for a special topic or speaker. Refreshments are also served.
