Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the San Diego TCF meeting scheduled for Wednesday, April 1, 2020 is cancelled.

Please understand this was a difficult decision, but we must all do our part to stay home and flatten the curve to decrease the spread of coronavirus and protect the most vulnerable.

The City of San Diego has closed all recreation centers until April 6. In the interest of public health, we will not be holding a TCF meeting in April to comply with the President's request to avoid public group gatherings of more than 10 people.

The status of May's meeting has not been determined.

Please visit for the latest updates on COVID-19.

Thank you for your understanding.

As of May 2020, our Regular Meetings are held on the first Wednesday of every month at:
Nobel Recreation Center
8810 Judicial Drive
San Diego, CA 92122


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.
