Light and Love
Join the movement. Walk with us as we walk alongside others in their healing journey. Walk in memory or in honor of someone you love or who has inspired you.
As our AVP, Barbara Maronski says, we are in the hope business. We lend out hope to those who need it. We bring compassion to our work. We light the way with Love. We are the Trauma and Violence Prevention cluster. We work with individuals who have experienced trauma and work with as a community to help prevent violence.
We believe Black Lives Matter. We are United for Justice. Our Cure4Camden Program works to heal the Camden City community from the public health crisis of gun violence.
We believe Connections and Relationships Matter. Our Reach for Success program pairs young people with low-level offenses with committed mentors to help improve their self-esteem, develop positive habits, and most importantly, have fun.
We believe that Women's Rights are Human Rights. Our Peaceful Tomorrows program provides youth and parents who have experienced domestic violence with a safe environment to heal from the effects of trauma.
We believe that Love is Love. Our Street Outreach Services is a street-based outreach program offering crisis intervention, counseling, advocacy, and prevention services. Counselors work to help teens who are facing homeless, have runaway or are couch-surfing find a safe and stable home.
We believe that each individual has a story that needs to be told. Our Grief and Traumatic Loss Services provide safe, supportive, and compassionate counseling and support services are available to guide individuals through the process of healing and recovery as they deal with grief and bereavement due to homicide or overdose.
Thanks to many of you in the past, we have supported individuals and families through:
- Funeral expenses for a family in need
- Support for International Survivors of Suicide Loss Day
- Grief and Traumatic Loss Services - Survivors of Homicide Loss’s Passport to Healing, bi-annual retreats for individuals who have lost someone to homicide. The retreats are designed to bring survivors together for a day of mutual support and healing while engaging in cooperative play, art, and music that builds and broadens individuals’ tools for surviving. Individuals and families can attend at no cost. So, through your support more families will have the opportunity to attend a day of healing and support.
