New Location for Monthly Meetings

As of November 2019, our Regular Meetings are held on the first Wednesday of every month at:
North Clairemont Recreation Center
4421 Bannock Avenue
San Diego, CA 92117


Meetings begin at 7:00 p.m. and end at 9:00 p.m.

Meetings are led by members who are further along in the grieving process. When attendance is high, small groups are formed so that everyone can participate to the extent they need. Newcomers participate at their own pace and there are no preconceived expectations of any kind.

During the month of your loved one's birthday, a celebration can be held at the end of the meeting. While completely optional, it gives the family an opportunity to share pictures and memories of their child in a safe and loving environment.



There are other Southern California chapters in the Los Angeles area.
