  1. COVID-19 Relief Fundraiser

    Homicide Survivors, Inc. continues to serve families impacted by homicide during the pandemic. Our staff has adapted to working from home and continues to meet the needs of survivors through virtual/telephonic means. As a Qualifying Charitable Organization (QCO #20972), approximately 68% of survivors served are in low-income households. Relief funds may be used for emergency financial assistance for families with urgent needs such as paying past or overdue rent to avoid eviction. This is most urgent for families whose main income earner was the homicide victim or if funeral expenses & other costs related to the crime left families unable to pay for rent and other basic needs. Donate today, and impact the life of a survivor who needs your support now more than ever.

A survivor's story

Tara lost her brother in 2005 and her sister in 2017 — both to gun violence.

Tara was homeless and had lost her two little kids to the state within two weeks of her sister Kim’s death. She didn’t know where to turn for help, just that she needed to find some way to cope with her trauma, stay sober and get her kids back.

“I literally had nothing, just the clothes I was wearing,” she said. “But I had to do something for my kids. It was just knowing that there was a chance I would never see my kids again.”

She went to her first Homicide Survivor’s vigil shortly after the trial for the man who shot her sister. She then started going to Homicide Survivors’ support groups and equine therapy. Since then, Tara has stayed sober, regained custody of her children, and has been an active HSI volunteer and voice for survivors.
