The Compassionate Friends East Of the River CT Chapter Steering Committee are all volunteers who understand and have compassion for those who hurt after the death of a beloved family member. Our founding Steering Committee Members are a combination of bereaved moms, dads, step-and adoptive parents and siblings, half siblings, and siblings. We welcome the input and assistance of other The Compassionate Friends Members.
This is A Journey That we All Share Together.
If you would like information about becoming a member of The Steering Committee or helping our chapter in any capacity, please just send an email, phone, or talk to any of us. We welcome all who wish to be of service.
