Review for Survivors of Violent Loss Program, San Diego, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I lost my 16-year-old daughter, my only child and only family, and was suicidal. We had struggled through a nasty divorce, genteel poverty and other difficulties. She was a senior who had been admitted to several Ivy League colleges and we were looking forward to a brighter future. I sought help from several different resources but none really helped until I found Survivors of Violent Loss Program. It is the only group that understands there are secondary victims and how to help us.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I went through the 10 week course twice and also received individual counseling. It was the only program that was effective for me and for many others.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would find ways to increase funding so the program would be available to more people.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Everyone is positive, supportive and kind.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Very caring and helpful people.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Increase services to those who need the help and reach children and adults in areas where violent death is more common.

Ways to make it better...

If I had known about this program sooner.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Lack of money.

One thing I'd also say is that...

The pain never goes away; it just becomes different and Survivors of Violent Loss Program help you to survive.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week
