The Bereaved Parents of the USA
Bereaved Parents of the USA (BPUSA), founded in 1985, is a nationwide organization designed to aid and support bereaved parents and their families who are struggling to survive their grief after the death of a child. Any bereaved parent, sibling, or grandparent is eligible to become a member of the BP/USA. Members are free to attend monthly meetings of their chapter, or any other chapter, as often and as long as necessary to meet their needs. The BPUSA is non-denominational. There is no religious creed involved. Members are free, however, to state their beliefs and the role those beliefs have played in their lives. The Anne Arundel County Chapter is a chapter of BPUSA.
