About us

Tuesday’s Children was founded to promote long-term healing in all those directly impacted by the events of Tuesday, September 11, 2001, including  more than 1500 families who lost a loved one, 2000 children who lost a parent, 1300 families of 9/11 responders, and families of the fallen who served in post-9/11 military operations. Through our international initiative, Project COMMON BOND, we have united 500 teenagers and young adults from 21 nations and territories to transform their experiences losing a loved one in a terrorist incident into global peace building efforts and friendships that transcend borders. 

Tuesday’s Children’s services strengthen family resilience, provide individual coping and life management skills and create community through mentoring, leadership, mental health support, family engagement opportunities, and “helping-heals” opportunities.  Recognizing the gap in available programs for the families of the fallen, Tuesday’s Children has launched its Military Initiative to provide such services.

 Years of experience in working with the 9/11 families has provided the Tuesday's Children team with insights into how to support those recovering from a great sorrow or loss. The care that comes from their sponsored programs honors and respects the losses and fills a void not met through other services. Recovery and resiliency is a long road; Tuesday's Children stays with families for the entire journey.

 

Tuesday's Children fosters community among families and provides programs and services designed to help them move forward in their lives. Tuesday's Children has garnered the families' trust while gaining an intimate understanding of the problems and realities in the days, months and years after a tragedy. Armed with this knowledge, we are able to address the unique challenges families and children face at every stage of their lives.
