Pittsburgh Chapter

The Compassionate Friends - Pittsburgh Chapter is a support community for bereaved parents, siblings, and grandparents. We meet once a month (usually the last Sunday of most months) to provide support and fellowship to our grieving members. If you have experienced the death of a child, sibling or grandchild, we are sorry that you happened to find our company, but you are in the right place to connect with others who understand what you are going through. Each member of TCF is a bereaved parent, grandparent, or sibling. We find solace, warmth and comfort here in the compassionate friendship of others, especially in the initial years of grieving and healing.

Chapter News


Monthly Meetings Update - Our meeting place, Bower Hill Community Church, is now no longer requiring masks to be worn indoors, based on the latest guidance from the CDC. If you join us at an upcoming meeting, you won't need to wear a mask if that is something you are comfortable with. Of course, if you want to continue to wear one, that is fine too!  Now that we are back to in-person meetings, we hope to see more of our members attending every month.  


New website coming soon – We will be moving to a new website server within the next few months so please be on the lookout for an email from us with information regarding this move.  This may entail a new IP address so if you have this website bookmarked, you will need to delete it and then bookmark the new one.  Details will follow soon.


"Coffee Hours" - We will continue to have virtual meetings once a month to give our members the opportunity to meet and support one another on a more frequent basis.  These short, one-hour meetings are scheduled for the second Tuesday of every month at 6 p.m.  Check your email for invitations to these meetings throughout the year.  We hope you can join us!
