Who We Are The Compassionate Friends is an emotional support group for those suffering from child loss. Parents, grandparents and siblings (age 12 and above) are all welcome. We are a self-help group. All of our leaders are bereaved parents. We are a non-profit, non-denominational support group with no religious affiliation. What We Do When a child dies, at any age, your family suffers intense pain and can cause you to feel hopeless and isolated. The Compassionate Friends provide 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. Who We Serve We are here for people in the Greater Boise, ID area (this includes Treasure Valley and surrounding areas.) Our group has attendees who come from as far as Sun Valley, ID. Anyone from the surrounding areas, or visiting our area, is welcome to attend. We need not walk alone. We are The Compassionate Friends.
