In the aftermath of the attacks on the World Trade Center, many survivors felt isolated and alone. Displaced from workplaces, homes and schools, mourning the loss of friends, co-workers and loved ones, they needed to put their lives back together and move forward.
In this atmosphere, a small group of World Trade Center survivors found each other online. They soon realized that, while their individual experiences were vastly different, by sharing knowledge and resources they were able to help themselves and each other.
That small, initial group led to the formation of the World Trade Center Survivors' Network (WTCSN), a non-profit, non-political group currently located in lower Manhattan.
Staffed entirely by volunteers, most of whom are themselves survivors, the World Trade Center Survivors' Network employs a wide range of initiatives and activities to serve survivors, including:
