We Need Not Walk Alone, We Are The Compassionate Friends!

The mission of The Compassionate Friends is to assist families
in the positive resolution of grief following the death of a child
and to provide information to help others be supportive.

This website is dedicated to those who have experienced the death
of a child or sibling. If you are in that situation, we want to HELP.

Our meetings are held the 3rd Tuesday of every month at 7PM at Buckhall United Methodist Church in Manassas, VA.

TCF PWC will be canceling monthly meetings until the COVID 19 issue has been resolved

Dear Members,

Your health is always our primary concern here within The Compassionate Friends. TCF PWC continues to monitor the evolving COVID-19 situation.

With regard to both TCF local meetings and activities, and in your own personal lives, we strongly emphasize the basic guidelines from the CDC: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/index.html

  • Wash your hands with soap frequently
  • Avoid touching your face
  • Stay home if you are sick
  • Avoid close contact with sick people
  • Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze
  • Use a mask to cover your face.

As circumstances develop in the coming days and weeks, we will stay in touch and communicate with you all as necessary.

Thank you again for your understanding and for your extra care and caution during this time.


Shane C. Williams
