Welcome to The Compassionate Friends of Tallahassee

"The Compassionate Friends is about transforming the pain of grief into the elixir of hope. It takes people out of the isolation society imposes on the bereaved and lets them express their grief naturally. With the shedding of tears, healing comes, and the newly bereaved get to see people who have survived and are learning to live and love again.”
   Simon Stephens, founder of The Compassionate Friends

The Compassionate Friends of Tallahassee is one of over 660 chapters across the United States, in Puerto Rico and Guam, and serves communities in North Florida and South Georgia.

The Compassionate Friends (TCF0 is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization serving those who have suffered the death of a child, grandchild, or sibling. Monthly chapter meetings offer friendship, caring and a safe place for bereaved parents, grandparents and siblings to discuss their grief with others who understand. The Tallahassee chapter offers a library of grief books, pamphlets, a quarterly e-newsletter and other support resources. We hold a Candle Lighting program on the second Sunday every December in memory of our loved ones.

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.

Our ongoing goal is to provide support, friendship, understanding and hope. Every day, The Compassionate Friends work to support, educate and connect families who have suffered the death of a child.

If you are a bereaved parent, grandparent or sibling and would like to talk with someone from our chapter, please call Becky at 850.422.8404 or email her at tcfot@yahoo.com
