Welcome to the website for The Compassionate Friends, Marin County, California 

The Mission of The Compassionate Friends: When a child dies, at any age, the family suffers intense pain and may feel hopeless and isolated. The Compassionate Friends provides highly personal comfort, hope, and support to every family experiencing the death of a son or a daughter, a brother or a sister, or a grandchild, and helps others better assist the grieving family.

Our Marin County,CA Chapter is part of The Compassionate Friends, a national, nonprofit, self-help support organization which offers friendship and understanding to families who are grieving the death of a child of any age, from any cause. Our purpose is to assist families toward the positive resolution of grief following the death of a child and to provide information to help others be supportive.

We are non-denominational. There are no membership fees or dues, and all bereaved family members are welcome.

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.

To learn more about The Compassionate Friends, visit the National website at: http://www.compassionatefriends.org To learn more about our Marin Chapter, click on the tabs at the top of this page.

Our monthly meetings will be held on the third Monday of the month at the Lucas Valley Community Church.  

Carole Bonnici and Nisha Zenoff have joined forces to co-lead TCF Marin, and Mark Rosengarden will act as our current meeting facilitator.
