Enroll Now in Upcoming FOS11 Chat

Families of September 11 (FOS11) invites all parents, caregivers, and advocates of children affected by 9/11 to join us for a very special chat discussion on Tuesday, April 19, 2005, from 9:00-10:00 PM EST. Whether you have concerns about developmental issues or how 9/11 is taught in school, questions about summer camp, or if you are just looking to connect with your peers in a safe, supportive environment -- we invite you to attend!

Dr. Donna Gaffney, a licensed mental health professional and trauma specialist, will moderate the chat. Dr. Gaffney is the author of The Seasons of Grief: Helping Children Grow Through Loss. She also wrote the professional guide accompanying the young adult book, 911: The Book of Help. Maureen Brogan, MA, LPC, the new Project Manager for the Children of September 11 webpage and Program Director for the NJ Family Advocate Program, will also be in attendance.
