Our Mission

In May of 2002, Susan and a group of other survivors of homicide formed the Connecticut Alliance for Victims of Violence & Their Families Inc. (CT-ALIVE) as a non-profit, 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization to help other survivors heal after the horrific trauma they had experienced.

Today, CT-ALIVE’s mission is to empower victims and their families to heal after experiencing the trauma of violence and abuse by providing support, advocacy and education.

At first to fulfill that mission, CT-ALIVE provided support to other families who had experience a domestic violence homicide and then to parents and grandparents whose loved ones were in an abusive relationship through the We Are On Your Side Project.

Currently, in partnership with Susan, CT-ALIVE supports services that are focused on women who have experienced abuse (domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse) and their children helping them to move forward.
