The Tuesday’s Children First Responder Alliance strives to provide you and your family with services and programs to alleviate stress and other mental health concerns. The First Responder Alliance has many valuable partners which aim to address your families’ urgent needs and provide a bridge to external physical and mental health services.
We have also found that when we connect our First Responder families to other members of the 9/11 community there is a profound and positive impact on collective healing — many of our programs assist families in forming connections, developing support systems and assisting families in coping with chronic mental and physical concerns.
We work with a number of community-based program partners, including Adelphi University Institute for Parenting, North Shore Child and Family Guidance Center, Child Mind Institute, Rosen Family Wellness Center of North Shore-LIJ Health System, Peninsula Counseling Center and WTC Environmental Health Center at NYC Health and Hospitals Corp. We also work closely with collaborating organizations dedicated to helping this population, including the FDNY Counseling Service Unit, the FealGood Foundation, Friends of Firefighters, Heart 9/11, Mt. Sinai Medical Center, New York Says Thank You, New York State Department of Health, the New York City Mayor’s Office, WTC Medical Monitoring and Treatment Centers in NY and NJ, the NYC Mental Health Association, Police Organization Providing Peer Assistance (POPPA), the Stephen Siller Foundation, Asociación Tepeyac de New York, AFL-CIO Member Assistance Program and numerous community associations.
The First Responder Alliance is supported by individual, corporate and foundation donors and has received a 2012-2014 cooperative award from the World Trade Center Health Program (WTCHP), administered by The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
