Remembering Senator Frank Lautenberg

Remembering Senator Frank Lautenberg
Sadly, we lost a champion for the 9/11 community with the recent death of Senator Frank Lautenberg. After 9/11, he relentlessly pushed for higher spending on homeland security and on the Tenth Anniversary he sponsored legislation calling for a national moment of silence to honor the victims. Most importantly, Senator Lautenberg was always available to listen to our concerns. I have fond memories of my last conversation with him while traveling from Washington DC on the Amtrak train. He reflected on how 9/11 affected him personally, and spoke passionately about his personal goal of making sure that future generations "never forget". As they say your eyes are the window to your soul. His compassion, determination to make a difference and love of life was conveyed through the twinkle in his bright blue eyes. Senator Lautenberg will sorely be missed.

They also got the chance to talk to hundreds of people about how to apply to the World Trade Center Health Program. The New York metropolitan area is home to many of the responders and survivors who were at the WTC site after 9/11. We are privileged to work with them to help determine their eligibility for health care coverage under the program and to assist with the application process.

Mary Fetchet Inducted in Columbia University School of Social Work Hall of Fame
VOICES Founding Director Mary Fetchet was inducted into the Hall of Fame at the annual Alumni Day of her alma mater, the Columbia University School of Social Work. "It was a great honor to be recognized with such esteemed individuals - Paul Kurzman '64, Sadye Logan '80DSW, and the late Shelton Granger '47, each who have made significant contributions to the field of social work. During the daylong event, we had an opportunity to present our work to educators and alumni." Those in attendance were especially interested to learn how VOICES social work training has influenced their work. "At the induction I was able to thank those who have supported my vision for VOICES - our dedicated staff, volunteers and interns, and my family and friends. As I reflect on the evolution of the organization over the past 12 years, the 9/11 families, survivors, rescue and recovery workers have been critical in guiding our work, and will continue to do so in the years ahead."
