Our Generous Donors
A special thank you to everyone who generously contributed to VOICES this year. Many sponsored our work through your philanthropic efforts, others volunteered your time and talents, or generously donated important funds to support our programs. Whatever your contribution, we are grateful!
This year we were inspired by the enthusiasm of individuals who contributed by organizing birthday fundraisers, bike-a-thons, bowl-a-thons, fun runs, stair climbs, or donating in memory of their loved one. Collectively the generosity of so many have helped us continue to make a difference in the lives of thousands of individuals and families we are privileged to assist.
Professionals Sharing Expertise
VOICES is indebted to the more than 60 professionals who contributed their time and expertise at our Annual September Events in New York City and our Preparing For After Conference at Grace Farms, CT in March. Mental health professionals, legal experts, subject matter experts and advocates, many who have dedicated their careers to helping the 9/11 community,contributed to making these events meaningful and informative.
We also appreciate the clinicians who provided support during special events such as the opening of the Memorial Glade at the 9/11 Memorial in New York City. Collaborations with these talented individuals throughout the year have helped promote healing and resiliency in the lives they’ve touched.
