Geographic areas served: San Diego County
Programs: Mission: provide a lifeline of hope and healing, while building a community of support. Svlp provides specialized counseling services needed after the violent death of a loved one to homicide, suicide, drunk driving, and other unnatural deaths. Three major services: evidence based counseling, peer support, and training. Svlp offers services to all residents of sd county suffering from traumatic loss, and will not deny clients based on the lack of ability to pay. Traditionally, such services and program have been inaccessible and scarce in all communities, and particularly in low income communities.

I went to the annual River of Remembrance in San Diego which is the first event for National Crime Victims Rights week.
My daughter and grandson were murdered in July 06, and this is the first year I attended this event.
I met Connie Saindon (MFT, Clinical Director, ED) at the event. She was very passionate about what she does and was so kind to all of us there remembering our lost loved ones.
There is an overwhelming need in our community to have support groups that address our unique issues that come with a violent loss and this is one of those groups we need so badly.
Since that event Connie has been in contact with me to let me know of upcoming events and I will do the same for her in the future.
Survivors of Violent loss program is one of the groups I suggest when working with families who have suffered a violent loss.
