COS11 Website Re-Launch

Families of September 11 (FOS11) recently re-launched its Children of September 11 (COS11) webpage. Our goal is to provide caretakers of children impacted by the events of 9/11 with accurate and current information that can easily be accessed and understood.

Visit COS11 to find answers to…

Children & Trauma
How can I help a child cope with traumatic loss?
Who can help me understand children and grief?
How does a child process grief over time?

School Issues
How should we teach/commemorate 9/11 in schools?
How can I tell if my child's school is secure and prepared?
How do I help my child's teachers and counselors understand the effect of 9/11?

Programs & Activities
What scholarship opportunities or financial aid programs are there for children affected by 9/11?
Are there summer camps or special programs available?
Where can I find support or mentoring programs for my child?
Are there any upcoming events geared to children or their caregivers?

The new layout of the COS11 website makes navigation for both professionals and families easier. Other websites are linked to and we offer a brief description of the contents of each website. We are reaching out to you to solicit your feedback not only about the new site, but also for your input on future topics, areas of concern, and to welcome you to submit information and/or resources that may be included on the site. You can reach us at (212) 575-1878 or info@familiesofseptember11.org.
