THE COMPASSIONATE FRIENDS

 

                                                                                         OF LOS ANGELES

MONTHLY MEETING 
Our monthly meeting is open to all bereaved parents and their families (siblings over 16 and grandparents) regardless of the age of the deceased child or the cause of death.  Our meetings provide emotional support and a safe place for feelings to be expressed.  For some, it is the only place where they are able to comfortably talk about their child and their grief.

Everything discussed at the meetings is confidential.  No one is required to speak.  Just listening to the experiences of others is often helpful in understanding confusing emotions and learning that there is no right or wrong way to make this journey.

Each meeting has a different topic and focus.   We may have a panel speak on a topic, break up into smaller groups (for one example- men and women), have a speaker, or view a short video to spark discussion, etc.  We suggest you try at least three meetings before you decide whether we are "right" for you.  Every meeting is quite different.  If you feel your first meeting didn't meet your needs, please try us again as we are always working to address varied aspects of this process.

There are no fees for membership or the meetings.

We have a free lending library at each meeting.  Our library has books, videos, and other materials and resources that you are welcome to borrow and return at a later meeting. 

We have no religious affiliation. 

First Thursday of every month:
                 8:00PM
NEW LOCATION 
(as of Oct. 1, 2015!)

Westside Jewish Community Center (no affiliation)- located at: 
5870 West Olympic Blvd., just east of Fairfax and San Vicente-  about a mile east of our current site.  Our first meeting at the new site will be on Thursday, October 1, at 8 PM.

PARKING:  There are 2 parking options:
-From 7PM on, there are no restrictions to parking on Olympic Blvd.  The Olympic entrance is the easiest for those attending the TCF meeting.  You have the choice of steps or a ramp to enter the front door.  You are then in the lobby, by the security guard's station.  Our meeting room is directly down the hall, the fist door on the left.  
-The other parking option is the JCC parking lot.  Driving east on Olympic, turn right onto Stanley Ave.  Going west on Olympic, turn left onto Stanley.  Stanley dead-ends at San Vicente, so you must turn right.  Take the next right, into the alley.  A half block up, enter the parking structure on the right.  After parking, exit the lot and and walk down the path to the green gate.  Push the buzzer, and security will buzz you into the courtyard.  Walk toward the stairs, and up a flight.  This leads to the lobby.  Turn left, and our meeting room is the first room on the left.
