The Compassionate Friends

The Compassionate Friends is a nonprofit national and international organization. It is a self-help support group for bereaved parents, siblings and grandparents. We gather once a month for meetings at the Bower Hill Community Church. We use the downstairs community room (Lounge) for the first half of our meeting which features a speaker. We then have an intermission and serve food and beverages in the hallway. The second half of our meeting utilizes the upstairs community room (Friendship Room) and Library in addition to the downstairs rooms, so that we may form six small groups for more intimate discussions. Every other month our steering committee meets and uses Room 103 for this meeting.
