Support Group Application Adults
Survivors of Homicide Support Group Application (Adults)
The Gwinnett County District Attorney's Office Victim Witness Program was created to assist victims and witnesses of crime during their involvement with the criminal justice system. The survivors of homicide support group was created for anyone who has experienced a loss due to a homicide or vehicular homicide.
The sudden or unexpected loss of a loved one can have a tremendous effect on those who knew the victim. Those left behind to mourn are called "homicide survivors" and no amount of justice, restitution, prayer or compassion will bring their loved one back. It is important to understand that grief can look different for everyone.
Death and grief are not openly discussed in American society. It can be very helpful and supportive to meet with others who have experienced similar losses. The survivors of homicide support group will provide a safe environment for children and adults to share their stories as they continue to face the challenges of life after a loved one has died.
We look forward to having you participate in our support group! Please be sure that you complete one application for each individual wishing to participate. This enables us to serve you as individuals.
