Grief Support After the Death of a Child

The mission of The Compassionate Friends of Salem (Salem TCF) is to assist families toward the positive resolution of grief following the death of a child of any age and to provide information to help others be supportive.

Salem TCF is affiliated with the national nonprofit The Compassionate Friends. It is a self-help support organization that offers friendship, understanding, and hope to bereaved parents, grandparents and siblings. We have no religious affiliation, and charge no membership dues or fees.

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. The vision of The Compassionate Friends is that everyone who needs us will find us and everyone who finds us will be helped.


Please feel welcome to explore this space we provide in outreach to the community. We hope you will find resources here for your support and comfort.
