Meeting Information

Meetings are free and open to Parents who have lost a child at any age and from any cause.

We also welcome Grandparents and Siblings (age 18 and over).

All Chapter Meetings are held the 1st Wednesday of each month at 7:30 p.m. at Old Historic St. Mary’s Church Hall at the corner of Rte. 123 (Ox Road) and Fairfax Station Road, Fairfax, VA. (see Directions Link)

We offer support for the Newly Bereaved and for those who are further along in their grief.

You do not have to speak or share anything unless you want to.

Meetings are confidential, what is said there stays there.

During the Meetings we may break into two groups – one dealing with General Bereavement Issues and the other with a Special Topic for the month (Meeting Topics Link).

On your Child’s Birth Month and Death Month you are welcome to bring photos, memorabilia and perhaps their favorite food or dessert to the meeting. You may do a 5 minute presentation on your child through speaking or video.

If you are a New Member we ask that you sign in on the New Member’s List (please print) so that you can be placed on the Mailing list for Monthly Newsletters, email reminder notices of meetings, special events, etc.

We have a Lending Library where you may check out any grief and healing books you may find helpful.
