Everyone who experiences a disaster, trauma or a crisis is touched by it and that includes first responders, crisis response workers and volunteers. We all need support sometimes.
Support is getting help from someone who has been there. This may be people with similar experiences who are able to listen, give hope and guidance toward recovery in a way that is different and valuable.
It is support founded on giving and receiving, help based on key principles of respect, shared responsibility, and mutual agreement. These articles, videos and other resources are meant to come along side you to provide and connect to others who may have gone through similar circumstances.
Looking for Support Groups in your area or want to let us know about new groups?
Life is difficult at times and we all need prayer. Submit a prayer request or contact us:
