Family & Friends of Homicide Victims

Family & Friends of Homicide Victims is, as the name suggests, a Capital District group that supports "the ones left behind."

What they do:
* We work together with community based victim service providers.
* We share our stories and experiences.
* We find commonality and programs which help us build communities.
* We work with a lot of different agencies to understand, improve and develop programs that will be beneficial and help us, “The Ones Left Behind”.
* We strive to help each other regain that sense of being safe.
* We are also involved with restorative justice practices and advocacy programs.
* We may not have been able to prevent the death of our loved one, but we can certainly bring meaning to their life.
