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.
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.
