As we begin the new year we would like to thank our donors and partners for your support in 2018!

Thanks to your generosity Voices of September 11th continues our mission of providing critical support services and access to resources and mental health care for victims' families, survivors and responders. With your support we are also able to devote time to sharing our lessons learned to assist communities in  responding to other tragedies. 

For details on how your contribution makes a difference

Here are a few highlights of our accomplishments in 2018:

VOICES held three conferences, each bringing together 9/11 families, survivors and responders, and those impacted by other tragediesThe events provided an opportunity for leading mental health practitioners, service providers, and researchers to share their expertise in fields such as trauma, bereavement, resiliency, and 9/11-related illnesses.
VOICES 9/11 Living Memorial Digital Archive, which commemorates the 2,977 lives lost and documents stories of survivors, continues to grow. This year, our staff met one-on-one with families to expand the Living Memorial collection to over 85,000 photographs and personal mementos.
VOICES launched Knowledge to Practice: Actionable Recommendations for Victims and First Responders to Better Plan and Heal from Mass ViolenceOur staff is conducting interviews with 9/11 families, survivors, responders, and key stakeholders to further examine findings from research that VOICES conducted in 2015.   
VOICES hosted 12 college and high school summer interns, who learned about 9/11 by working alongside our staff. The interns researched 9/11 topics, conducted dozens of interviews, and produced a short film, Reflecting and Moving Forward - Stories of Resiliency After 9/11 which was presented to the community and at a September assembly.
VOICES fundraising events included our 10th Annual Always Remember Gala at the New York Athletic Club and 4th Annual Golf Outing at Westchester Country Club. Pictured at left are Gala award recipients Leon E.

VOICES remains committed to sharing our lessons learned to assist communities in responding to acts of mass violence.
