We have had many donations of books from members of TCF Oscoda Area. We are always looking for ways to increase our library resources (books, videos, tapes) and we gladly accept books or other self help materials for our members continuing needs.
Lending Process and Expectations
Books are lent out at our monthly meetings. We ask that you sign them out and return them within a "reasonable" amount of time. Remember, others may be waiting for the book that you have on loan.
The Compassionate Friends National Website:
Open to Hope Webinars:
The Compassionate Friends offers "virtual chapters" through an Online Support Community (live chats). This program was established to encourage connecting and sharing among parents, grandparents, and siblings (over the age of 18) grieving the death of a child. The rooms supply support, encouragement, and friendship. The friendly atmosphere encourages conversation among friends; friends who understand the emotions your're experiencing. There are general bereavement sessions as well as more specific sessions.
Private Facebook Groups
TCF offers a variety of closed Facebook Groups. These pages are moderated by bereaved parents, siblings or grandparents, and may not be accessed unless your request to join is approved by a moderator. A private message will be sent prior to approval, please be sure to check your mailbox marked "Other" if you do not receive one in your main mailbox. These pages were established to encourage connection and sharing among parents, grandparents and siblings grieving the death of a child, sibling or grandchild.
