We would like to welcome you to Parents Of Murdered Children & Other Survivors of Homicide Victims.  We are glad that you have found us and offer our deepest sympathies for what brings you here.
We will never judge you for your feelings regardless of how angry or sad you may feel at this tragic time of your life.  We are only here to help.

POMC Mission:

  POMC makes the difference through on-going emotional support, education, prevention, advocacy and awareness.

POMC Vision Statement:

 To provide support and assistance to all survivors of homicide victims while working to create a world free of murder.

Why We Are Here:

  We are a self-help support organization made up of persons whose loved ones have been murdered. 

  1. To offer support to the survivors of a violent death, as they seek to recover.
  2. To provide contact with similarly bereaved persons and establish regular monthly meetings.
  3.  To share information about the grieving process.
  4.  To provide information about the criminal justice system as it pertains to the survivors of homicide.
  5.  To communicate with professionals in the grief counseling field, and advise families of the available aid.
  6. To increase public awareness of the problems faced by survivors.
  7.  We are here to help.  

We realize that no two people grieve in the same manner.  We also realize our shortcomings in our attempts to help others.  We appreciate your suggestions on how we may further help our group members.
