The Chicagoland Chapter is a local support group of the national organization, Bereaved Parents of the USA (BP/USA), established in 1974 to offer support, understanding, encouragement and hope to other bereaved parents, siblings and grandparents after the death of their children, brother, sister or grandchildren.
