The Compassionate Friends of Spokane


The Compassionate Friends is a self-help organization offering friendship, understanding, and hope to bereaved families that have experienced the death of a child of any age, from any cause.  The Spokane chapter of The Compassionate Friends serves Spokane County and all surrounding communities.

The mission of The Compassionate Friends:

When a child dies, at any age, the family suffers intense pain and may feel hopeless and isolated.  The Compassionate Friends provides highly personal comfort, hope, and support to every family experiencing the death of a son or a daughter, a brother or a sister, or a grandchild, and helps others better assist the grieving family.

2014 Support Group Meetings and Events…

TCF of Spokane support group meetings sometimes start with a theme or guest speaker to get the discussion moving, but most of the time is spent talking about our kids and sharing our experiences.  Feel free to bring something to share about your child or sibling, like photos, mementos, a poem or a story that you wrote.

Meeting reminders and notification of any special meeting subjects, guest speakers, webinars, etc. that are scheduled will be sent out to those on our email list and posted on the TCF of Spokane Facebook page.  If you would like to be added to our mailing list, email us at or fill in the Contact Us form.

Meetings are always subject to change so check our Facebook page for the latest information and updates, right up to the day of the meeting.
