Mission:

Journey 4ward responds to the emotional needs of families and supports family members through the cycle of grief that comes with losing a loved one to violence. We are a resource to families of murder victims by providing traumatic counseling services, support networks, community education and therapeutic activities that are free, peer-based, and ongoing. Journey 4ward has a network of mothers, fathers, siblings and children who can support and encourage one another. We are here to build community partnerships to better support grieving families.

Journey 4ward’s utilizes programs to educate our community and to improve conditions that will reduce gun violence. Journey 4ward promotes pro-social activities, curriculum and teaching principles that will create non-violence, leadership, and other skills that will engage youth to become proactive in the fight against gun violence; ultimately interrupting the gun violence in our communities.
