 We need not walk alone...
The death of a child of any age, from any cause, is a catastrophic and life-changing experience for a family. When a child dies, a family needs emotional support for the long grief journey ahead.

The Compassionate Friends of Mohawk Valley was established in June of 2010 to provide a safe environment for families to obtain meaningful support and develop hope following the death of their children.

When a child dies, at any age, the family suffers intense pain and may feel hopeless and isolated. The Compassionate Friends provides 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.


Vision Statement
The vision statement of The Compassionate Friends is that everyone who needs us will find us and everyone who finds us will be helped. 
With the recent rapid developments in our region with the coronavirus outbreak and our Oneida County Executive’s recent declaration of emergency through 4/13/2020, I have decided to cancel the 3/24/2020 meeting at the Good News Center and the 4/14/2020 meeting at the Stittville United Methodist Church. I am hoping that we can resume our support group meetings at the Good News Center on 4/28 and in Stittville on 5/12.

This was not a decision that I came too lightly, but given the current state of affairs, I felt that suspending our meetings for now, made the most sense.

If you are looking for additional support during our hiatus here are some options:

I have also canceled our chapter program on 4/21/2020 with Claudia Coenen. I am hopeful of rescheduling that for October of this year..

Thank you for your understanding during this particularly chaotic time in our nation.
