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 bother 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 fund us and everyone who finds us will be helped

Chapter Credo: We neednot 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, wile 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.
