Compassionate Friends

The Compassionate Friends (TCF) group provides support following the deaths of children, regardless of cause or age. The group leads discussion-based meetings, sometimes picking a topic or watching a movie, but usually just allowing a discussion to run its own course. The group has no religious affiliation and neither discourages or encourages members to speak about their faith. It does no collect membership dues or fees. TCF meetings are held on the last Thursday of the month at 7pm at the People Place in Vernon (3400 27 Avenue). For more information, phone Darlene at 250-558-5026 or Carol at 250-309-4335. TCF Vernon has compiled a bereavement package designed to offer comfort and guidance as you being to grieve the loss of your previous child. If you would like a Bereavement Package mailed to you, please contact Darlene at 250-558-5026 or email
