Our Goal

The Never Forget Project will work to aid the FDNY family which has been gravely effected by the attacks and recovery efforts of September 11, 2001. The exposure to various toxins as a result of these attacks have lead to a wide range of illnesses that have classified FDNY members permanently disabled, terminally ill and living with long term irreversible health conditions.

For the families of FDNY and their brave and selfless members, the NFP will bring to life their continued realities, both tragic and triumphant through education, collaboration and commemoration.

Since 2002 our 9/11 Family Camp has been for families and friends affected by the tragedies of September 11, 2001 from FDNY Ladder Company 3, Battalion 6 (and other firehouses) and Cantor Fitzgerald from New York as well as The Pentagon.

We are eagerly awaiting our 15th Annual Family Camp this summer from August 14th through lunch on the 18th. We have combined our 9/11 families and Alumni Adventure Camp families on the Kieve campus to enjoy lots of fun and games!

We still continue to thank our local and corporate sponsors, supporters, entertainers and event hosts - without you the first 14 years of this week would not be possible. Read More>

Friends of Firefighters is dedicated to addressing the physical, mental health, and wellness needs of New York City’s firefighters and their families. Our ongoing mission is to provide long-term support and services through confidential counseling, wellness services, and other assistance required by firefighters and their families.

Friends of Firefighters, Inc. (FoF) is a New York City not-for-profit corporation that began as a community-based group in response to the events of September 11, 2001.

Thousands of active and retired firefighters responded to the alarm and 343 members of the Fire Department of New York (FDNY) perished in the collapse of the World Trade Center towers on September 11, 2001. Friends of Firefighters was born within days of this catastrophic event through the performance of several unobtrusive acts of kindness offered by the local community. These ranged from making dinners for exhausted rescue workers, to coordinating and facilitating “behind the scenes” in a variety of ways for funerals and memorials, to sitting and listening to firefighters talk over a cup of coffee.

Friends of Firefighters was born out of necessity after the 9/11 attacks.  Offering therapeutic and mental health resources to active and retired firefighters and their families in the days following, we quickly realized this issue would need to be addressed for years to come.  Over the past 14 years, Friends of Firefighters has expanded to meet the growing needs of the FDNY community.

Formed in the aftermath of Tuesday, September 11, 2001, Tuesday’s Children is a response and recovery organization that supports youth, families, and communities impacted by terrorism and traumatic loss.

For nearly 15 years, it has been our job to support you, the family members of those who lost their lives on Tuesday, September 11. We are committed to honoring our promise to help.

You have helped us as well. Working with you, we have learned how to be a valuable resource for other grieving children and families left behind after acts of terrorism or violence. Now the programs we developed with you can be used to help others – as we had done in Newtown, CT and with military Families of the Fallen. Learn More>
