We invite you to explore the website honoring Kara - the daughter of one of our group members. The story of her daughter’s life is a gift to readers in hopes that others can pay it forward. Cara is remembered, not because of her achievements, but because of the extraordinary challenges she faced.

National Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims
September 26, 2019 marked the annual National Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims, giving us all the opportunity to remember those lost to homicide and honour their memories. This day of remembrance serves to focus on the impact of murder on families and communities and the support for survivors. At our September 2019 VOH meeting, we released balloons in honour of this day and all of our loved ones, sharing our memories with the sky.
