Free Help Applying for Emergency Aid

Safe Horizon, New York City’s leading victim assistance organization since 1978, is continuing their mission to provide support, prevent violence, and promote justice for victims of crime and abuse, their families and communities by responding the special needs of the victims of the World Trade Center Tragedy. Safe Horizon staff was mobilized to the Family Assistance Center @ Pier 94 and 54th Street. At the Center, the staff help victims and relatives apply for emergency compensation to cover immediate expenses (rent, utilities, groceries) as well as funeral expenses, and long term counseling. During those same sessions, they also work with individuals and families to calm them, assist in the grief, and refer them to other appropriate services. The effort is supported by the NY Crime Victims Board, and the United Way September 11th Fund. Call toll free number for location near you. Contact Safe Horizon: 800-621-HOPE; 212-577-7777; {}.
