Homicide Survivors Program

 

Homicide Survivors Program (HSP)

The Homicide Survivors Program (HSP) supports families and friends who have lost loved ones to murder or vehicular homicide. HSP’s mission is to identify survivors in need of practical intervention and support following the murder of a loved one and to provide emotional and grief support.  We also provide victims’ advocacy and assist survivors as they navigate through the criminal justice system.

Grief doesn’t just go away with time, you have to work through it. One way to accomplish this is to connect with a person or group with whom you can talk freely and share your experience.  We provide support groups that will connect you with those who understand what you are experiencing through all stages of the grief process.  Additionally, our qualified staff are available to provide individual and family grief counseling, listen and assist you with specific questions you may have, and provide you with helpful resources and assist you with victim’s compensation if available to you.

*HSP is supported by Sub-grant #15-VA-UN-021, awarded by ADECA/Bureau of Justice Assistance, Office of Justice Programs, U.S. Department of Justice
