Dedicated to Helping Victims of Mass Violence

Over $10.71M Given Directly to Victims

Since 2021, VictimsFirst has ensured that 100% of donations intended for mass violence victims and survivors go directly to them. Thanks to the support of generous donors, we have been able to help over 1,550 mass shooting victims' families and survivors.

In 2012, a network of mass shooting families—many of whom comprise VictimsFirst—banded together to respond immediately to mass shootings across the country. The goal was simple: advocate for and protect victims while educating communities so that mass shooting victims would not be re-victimized. Since then, we've worked behind-the-scenes as rapid responders in mass shootings and mass casualty crimes across the country, including Newtown, Boston, Orlando, Vegas, Parkland, Thousand Oaks, El Paso, Atlanta, Indianapolis, Boulder, Collierville, Uvalde, Colorado Springs, and Allen—to name a few.

 

We continue to serve as an invaluable resource to victims' families, survivors, and affected communities when mass violence strikes anywhere in the United States. Our programs, services, and resources can be accessed below.
