Support

Facing the death of a loved one is never easy. When murder occurs, pain, anger, and grief are compounded by the crushing realization that a precious life was intentionally taken. 

We're Here to Help

You are not alone.

What happens at a meeting

Most meetings begin with introductions and each survivor telling of their loss. Acceptance and support are important principles of group support.
