Compassionate Families

We at Compassionate Families, Inc. have prided ourselves for never asking for payment for any of our services, and we remain committed to our Mission in that regard and all others.  Thank you for your continued support of Compassionate Families and our mission.    An “ask” is never easy and actually very uncomfortable for us. We have been here for over 16 years to serve homicide survivor families and have valued every opportunity to do so. The well-being of our families in surviving the loss of a loved one has, and always will be, our priority.  We are now facing our own survival and keeping our organization alive. Due to unforeseen loss of revenue dollars we are at high risk of not being able to continue with our mission. We are fighting with everything we have to keep afloat, but without financial short term assistance, our services will be drastically impacted.  If you can make a financial contribution in any amount (no amount is too small) please do so now.  If you cannot, we understand.  Please just keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we will continue to do for you.

Warm Regards,

Staff, Board and Volunteers
Compassionate Families Inc.
