Voices of September 11th was co-founded by Mary Fetchet of New Canaan, Connecticut, who lost a loved one in the September 11th attack. Voices was established informally in October, 2001, in order to provide victims' families with up-to-date information on programs, resources, services and related events. Weekly support groups were held for family members and the organization began to grow.
Voices' mission has since evolved to include a community-based program to assist families and extended families. Using the experience of the Oklahoma City bombing on its community, Voices works to address the long-term mental health issues of depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress and risk of suicide.
Because of the increasing demand of services, Voices of September 11th Secured a 501(c)3, non-profit status and opened an office in New Canaan, Connecticut. The ongoing mandate is to act as a clearinghouse of information for the 9/11 families by maintaining a website, distributing newsletters and conducting outreach programs. As an advocacy group on behalf of 9/11 families, Voices will communicate with public officials and other agencies regarding the World Trade Center Memorial, annual commemorative events and other issues.
As a community based organization, Voices provides support groups, bereavement groups, education, outreach, mental health assessments and referrals and related workshops. It is participating in Columbia University's 3 year World Trade Center Evacuation as an advisory board member.
