Grieving Families Need Your Support
Murder exacts a tremendous physical and emotional toll on individuals, families and entire communities. Surviving family members of a homicide victim face the additional trauma and stress of having to bury their loved one, often with insufficient financial resources.
Funds for burials, especially cemetery costs, are the biggest and most immediate hurdles a family must address. These costs include: the purchase of a cemetery plot, opening and closing of the grave. Cemeteries do not offer financing; therefore families must come up with the payment upfront before a burial can happen. The Peace Institute has established the REST IN PEACE Fund and is leading a collaborative effort to ensure that financial resources are available to families of homicide victims when they need them most.
