Welcome The Survivors of Violent Loss Resources is an online network for those who work with and live with violent death. The content provided on this site is an extension of the program in San Diego, California, that was formed by Connie Saindon and many others in 1998.
Violent death (from murder, suicide or drunk driving) accounts for nearly 10% of deaths in the U.S. and may be associated with a prolonged bereavement in family members and friends.
The Mission of this site is to provide a lifeline of hope and healing, addressing the issues of traumatic grief for those who live and work to rebuild their lives after a homicide, suicide, drunk driving, or terrorist fatality.
