Register for our 2nd Annual Walk to Remember here!
Welcome to El Paso, Texas
Chapter Mission: When a child dies, at any age, the family
suffers pain and may feel hopeless and isolated.The Compassionate Friends provides highly
personal comfort, hope, and support to very family experiencing the death of a
son or a daughter, a brother or a sister, or a grandchild, and helps other
better assist the grieving family.
Chapter Vision: The vision statement of The Compassionate
Friends is that everyone who needs us will find us and everyone who finds us
will be helped
Chapter Credo: We need not walk alone. We are the Compassionate Friends.We reach out to each other with love, with
understanding, and with hope.The
children we mourn have died at all ages and from many different causes, but our
love for them unites us. Your pain becomes my pain, just as your hope becomes
my hope.We come together from all walks
of life, from many different circumstances.We are a unique family because we represent many races, creeds, and
relationships.We are young and we are
old. Some of us are far along in our
grief, but others still feel a grief so fresh and so intensely painful that
they feel helpless and see no hope. Some
of us have found our faith to be a source of strength, while some of us are
struggling to find answers. Some of us
are angry, filled with guilt or in deep depression, while others radiate an
inner peace. But what ever pain we bring
to this gathering of The Compassionate Friends, it is pain we will share, just
as we share with each other our love for the children who have died. We are all seeking and struggling to build a
future for ourselves, but we are committed to building a future together.We reach out to each other in love to share
the pain as well as the joy, share the anger as well as the peace, share the
faith as well as the doubts, and help each other to grieve as well as to
grow.We Need Not Walk Alone. We Are The Compassionate Friends.
