Tuesday’s Children partners with recognized leaders in the fields of child development, family advocacy, crisis counseling and mentoring to develop an innovative platform of programs to meet the changing needs of thousands of individuals who continue to heal after the tragic events of September 11, 2001.
Tuesday’s Children provides direct services and continuous outreach to approximately 10,000 individuals, including bereaved families and individuals, families of first responders, veterans of post-9/11 military operations, and teenagers from around the world impacted by a traumatic loss due to terrorism.
We have an enduring commitment to the children who lost parents on September 11, 2001, and as they grow, so does Tuesday’s Children. We are providing access to career services and empowering them to give back through community service, mentoring, and supporting younger children in our community, including children of veterans and first responders.
As a long-term response and recovery organization, the Tuesday’s Children strategy and mission, grounded in the principle of resilience and strength through community, has now been adapted to meet the needs of other communities affected by traumatic events.
The Resiliency Center of Newtown, a new program of Tuesday’s Children, is implementing our Long-Term Healing Model, which provides recovery services to support the families impacted by the December 14, 2012 tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary.
We lost dear friends and relatives on September, 11th, but in the process, we’ve healed as a community and created lasting relationships that bond us together. Through our commitments to each other, we can heal by turning our tragedies into a positive force for good.
We have a enduring commitment to the children who lost parents on September 11th, and as they get older we are providing access to career services and strive to empower them to become the next generation of leaders by allowing them to give back through community service, mentoring, and supporting younger children in our community, including children of veterans and first responders.
Tuesday’s Children has a moral responsibility to share the knowledge we’ve gained since September 11th, about long-term and collective healing. For this reason, our mission has expanded to offer support and programming to other communities impacted by acts of terror. Through programs like ProjectCOMMON BOND and the Resiliency Center of Newtown, we are committed to being a leader in long-term recovery from mass acts of tragedy and terrorism.
We feel it is our duty not only to memorialize those we’ve lost, but to do all we can to comfort and support their children and families…ur living memorials.
