We Are The Compassionate Friends of Marietta, Georgia
The Compassionate Friends exists to assist
bereaved families following the death of a child of any age and from any cause.
We are a self-help organization made up of
family members that have walked this path of loss and grief.
We hope by sharing our journey you will know you
need not walk alone and there is hope further down the road.
Any bereaved family member may become a member
of The Compassionate Friends without regard to age, race, creed, social status,
sex, or financial condition. The term "bereaved family" shall include
anyone who was in a parental, sibling, or grand parental relationship with a
child who died, regardless of biological ties. The recommended minimum age is
eighteen years old for a bereaved sibling to participate in a regular chapter
We meet the first Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. at the First Baptist Church of Marietta.
At this time the Marietta Chapter does not have
a separate siblings group.
We do have two members that are fluent in
Spanish. Please let us know ahead of time if this is a service that you need so
we can make sure one of the members will be available.
