Welcome to the Madison Area Chapter of the Compassionate Friends

We are a local Chapter of a National grief support organization for families who have experienced the death of a child.  The Compassionate Friends is a mutual assistance, self-help organization offering friendship and understanding to bereaved families following the death of a child.    There is no religious affiliation.  There are no membership fees or dues, and all bereaved family members are welcome.
