Voices of September 11th (VOICES) was founded in 2001 by 9/11 family members, Mary Fetchet and Beverly Eckert to provide information and a wide range of support services for all those impacted by the attacks on September 11, 2001. Led by Mary Fetchet, a clinical social worker and educator who lost her 24 year old son Brad, VOICES dedicated staff provide continuity of care and facilitate programs that promote resiliency and address the long-term, intergenerational needs of 9/11 families, rescue workers and survivors. In 2006 VOICES launched the 9/11 Living Memorial Project to assist families in the process of creating a meaningful tribute to the nearly 3,000 lives lost and to document the stories of thousands of rescue workers and survivors at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and Shanksville, PA.. Today, the 9/11 Living Memorial is an extensive online collection of over 60,000 photographs, written tributes and personal keepsakes contributed by families, so the world will always remember the lives of those lost and the inspirational stories of those who survived. The 9/11 Living Memorial will continue to expand and become a core component of exhibits at the National September 11 Memorial & Museum.

With offices in Connecticut, New Jersey and Washington, DC, VOICES membership has grown to over 13,000 families living in the United States and abroad. VOICES experienced social workers provide a wide array of support services including case management, support groups, educational programs, workshops and an annual Day of Remembrance Information Forum on September 10th and September 11th Commemorative Luncheon. 9/11 Living Memorial workshops are conducted in communities around the country.
