TAPS (Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors) has set up a "Navy Yard Tragedy Family Support Fund" for those affected by the recent tragedy. They have experience and expertise in providing this support for families in circumstances like this, such as for the recent Fort Hood shooting victims.
TAPS is the 24/7 tragedy assistance front line resource for anyone grieving the death of a loved one in, or in support of, military service to America - including the surviving families of contractors and government civilians.
TAPS provides help, hope and healing through comprehensive services and programs that include peer-based emotional support, casework assistance, community-based care, survivor seminars, children's camps and a wide range of grief and trauma publications and resources. TAPS receives no government funding and all services are free of charge to the surviving family members.
