Our goals:

  • Prayer support from a Christian worldview to those bereaved through homicide, suicide or other sudden traumatic deaths
  • A place that enables you to meet with people who can understand your pain, who share  your fears, to know that it is ok to cry and to realize that it is also ok to laugh in the understanding that you won’t be judged by your actions
  • Healing and grace through a relationship with Jesus Christ
  • Fellowship with other believers
  • Emotional support through the legal process
  • Support to enable you to forgive when you are ready

What we do not do:

  • Offer professional counseling services, but we do have a list of counselors available
  • Petition courts about legal issues
  • Answer the question why or how you could have changed or stopped this event
  • Seek revenge, retaliation or punitive damages

Services we offer:

  • Prayer group that meets monthly at a local church
  • List of counselors prepared to help you work through your grief
  • Books and other written resources
