Current Projects

Works of HEART; LIVE ON- art made by survivors to share as a moving community installation. We need help sharing this project, collecting craft/art supplies, creating art, and working on the installation.

• LOSS TEAM- Local Outreach to Suicide Survivors- We are in the process of establishing a local team for responses when a suicideattempt or death occurs. We have begun collecting the information and resources to allow us to begin establishing a team for Warren County. The development of this team may take upwards of a year to be established and ready for response. Until we are set up, please feel free to reach out for connections to existing support. There are resources available locally and nationally to help in coping with loss by suicide.
