When an unexpected tragedy occurs, like the murder of a loved one, most people have no where to turn for support in the aftermath of the crime. Survivors of Homicide, Inc. offers many resources in the area of support groups, legal resources, advocacy, and information for it’s members in Connecticut.
Guest, Jessica Norton, will bring information to all listeners who have suffered through a homicide that may be wondering what to do next. Like a ship against the storm, families across the nation are seeking balance in the aftermath, and organizations like Survivors of Homicide provide ways to find it.
Survivors of Homicide, Inc. was founded in 1983 by a group of families who were trying to cope with the murder of a family member or someone else close to them. They met to support each other, and to share information about the criminal justice system. As time went on, membership grew and the mission expanded. We have become outspoken advocates for all victims of violent crime, for fair compensation to victims, and for public policy and understanding that reduces the senseless violence sweeping our communities. Our organization is based in Connecticut, but it is open to anyone who needs our help or shares our goals.
SOH is the only place where everyone is the same. Everyone goes through the grief process differently; however, we are all connected through a common bond of pain and loss. We may be the club no one wants to belong to, yet, it is the only place where we can be together and understand each other even when words cannot be spoken.
