Because of your loved one’s death, your family may be eligible for help from Georgia’s Crime Victims’ Compensation Program to cover financial obligations such as burial expenses. Talk to a victim advocate who can help you apply for financial assistance.
Another family who has also lost a loved one to homicide knows how deep the pain of murder can extend. Because family members need working knowledge of the criminal justice system, victim advocates offer information to give a better understanding of the legal proceedings.
Any family survivor of a homicide victim is welcome to join the survivors support group even if the murder did not happen in Atlanta. The group meets twice monthly. Take a look at the schedule to find a date for your family to attend. Sign up now to reserve your families’ space to attend the next Survivors Support Group online or call us at (404)588-4740.
