Formed in the aftermath of Tuesday, September 11, 2001, Tuesday’s Children is a response and recovery organization that supports youth, families, and communities impacted by terrorism and traumatic loss.
Individuals directly impacted by the events of September 11th have been supported by Tuesday’s Children.
Individuals are currently served by the First Responder Alliance, a Tuesday’s Children program.
Youth from 20+ countries affected by violent extremism have attended Project Common Bond.
Youth have joined the Career Resource Center supported by our network of industry contacts.
Who We Serve
In partnership with experts from around the world and in collaboration with renowned facilitators and mental health professionals, Tuesday’s Children serves communities altered by an act of violence.
9/11 Family Members
We serve all members of the September 11th community including, but not limited to, children, spouses, young adults, and individuals.
Military Families of the Fallen
We have demonstrated success engaging, mentoring, and blending military families in events and programs that build community and promote resilience.
9/11 First Responders
We have found that connecting First Responder families to other members of the September 11th community facilitates healing.
International Young Adults Impacted by Terrorism
We serve international adolescents who have experienced the loss of a family member due to an act of terrorism, violent extremism, or war at Project COMMON BOND.
International Peace Builders
We offer training for international chaperones from organizations that provide services in the fields of conflict resolution, social services, and mental health.
Local and Global Communities Impacted by Traumatic Loss
We’ve developed services for local & global communities impacted by traumatic loss, such as those impacted by the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, CT.
How We Do It
Our Long-Term Healing Model
Over the years, we have built upon our proven methodology, elevated our platform of programs and services, and established new ways to broaden our organization’s reach and impact. We have worked to research, validate, and codify Tuesday’s Children’s enduring approach to long-term healing so that we may help other communities in need.
Our 15 years working with these communities has taught us that they need our long-term commitment and response; broad community-based outreach; a needs-based adaptive approach; evidence-based, resilience-building services; family and community involvement; and carefully selected partnerships.
We can assist in program development for community-based organizations, corporate or employee assistance programs, and aid government agencies and other service providers who seek to deliver effective long-term recovery to their own communities in the wake of tragedy.
