The Compassionate Friends offers over 600 chapters around the country. In small towns and large cities, bereaved parents, siblings, and grandparents meet together to talk, listen, share, and provide each other emotional support after the devastating death of a child. When you attend chapter sessions, you won’t find professionals running the meetings and giving advice. We are not therapists and we do not provide counseling. Everyone will be just like you – someone who is going through the natural grieving process.
As we meet together, we learn from each other through our shared experiences. You will find people attending the meetings of all ages from young adult to 70 and 80 year-olds. You will find people mourning the loss of an adult child and others who are mourning the loss of a child who never had an opportunity to take their first breath. You may find people whose child died 30 years ago and others with a loss so fresh their pain is measured in days and weeks.
The Roaring fork Chapter meets at the Orchard 110 Snowmass Dr., Carbondale, CO 81623
