Attending your first support group takes courage. In our meetings, we provide a supportive network of friendship and understanding where you can share stories, experiences, and emotions.
We offer a number of traditional support groups for adult survivors. The emotions experienced after homicides are unique and something that is only fully understood by other survivors. At our support groups, you are able to sit and talk with other survivors about their reactions, without fear of judgment or you can take the time to listen.
Our Hope & Healing Workshops offer survivors an opportunity to connect with their community, while holding a safe and creative atmosphere for survivors to express their emotions.
When a homicide occurs, the last thing a survivor wants to think about is dealing with all of the logistical and financial burdens that this crime can bring.
