What to expect


Chapter meetings are held at Hamilton's on Westown Parkway the first Tuesday of each month. Meetings start at 7pm and generally last about two hours. You do not need to contact us in advance - all are welcome to attend. Our national chapter has a great page that highlights what to expect at a Chapter meeting.

It is important to note that our meetings should not be confused with counseling sessions. Participants are all bereaved parents (guardians), adult siblings, or grandparents who are dealing with the death of a child. We have been where you are and we continue to return to offer friendship and support through the natural grieving process after a child dies.
