This is our Outreach Program for Survivors of Terrorism. This program aims to:
- Help survivors come to terms with their experiences. Providing counseling and peer support is often the first step in understanding the needs of survivors, and helping them deal with their own tragedies.
- Provide information about resources available to survivors.
- Connect survivors with each other. Studies show that belonging to a network of support and connecting with other survivors is very beneficial. In response, the WTCSN organizes social activities and informal get-togethers throughout the year.
- Create a network of survivors, which is particularly important to isolated survivors who do not live in the New York area or have relocated.
- Support survivors and their families, as well as work with schools, social workers and other authorities to help them understand the very specific problems and needs of survivors.
- On-line Peer Support Group "9-11 Survivors " offers support for survivors of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. Freely share your stories and feelings in a safe, confidential forum. We were there too. We understand. To join this private, moderated online support group, use our Join link.
- Commemorative and healing events on the anniversaries of September 11.
