Sadly, people from all over New York City have lost family members to gun violence. When a life is lost, families want to ensure that their loved one’s name is not forgotten. Many of them stop by our office to find out how they can honor the lives lost; some do so by connecting to others in similar situations and some even start their own foundations. In the fall of 2012 the Crown Heights Community Mediation Center decided to create a record of all of the resources that support families’ grieving and rebuilding process.

The list is organized into several sections to categorize organizations, and includes:
  •         Organizations supporting family members of homicide victims
  •         Organizations founded by family members of homicide victims
  •         Support for Starting a Non-Profit
  •         Resources and support in the grieving process

This list is a work in progress, so please contact Ariana Siegel at or call 718-773-6886 if you know of additional organizations that should be included.
