Home Meetings

Home meetings give TCF-Pittsburgh Chapter members, particularly new ones, the opportunity to meet with a small group in a more intimate setting. Often, a monthly sharing just isn’t enough, as members long to talk about and share memories of their child, grandchild, or sibling with others on a more frequent basis. We will guide you through the specifics, although it is rather simple. It is opening your home and hearts to others who are struggling to move forward in the grieving process.

In the past, home meetings have been in held in the eastern, western, northern, and southern regions of Pittsburgh. Meetings can be held on the day of your choosing, and they have typically been held in the evenings. TCF-Pittsburgh Chapter’s trained facilitators will be available to provide support and guidance for the home meetings.

If you are interested in hosting a home meeting or would like more information, please contact Jeff Bragdon (412-341-3286 or jeffbragdon@gmail.com).

We will provide meeting information (dates, hosts’ names, address, and contact information) at our monthly meetings, where our members will be able to sign up to attend one or more meetings. If agreeable to the hosts, we may also post limited information about the meetings on this website.
