Voices by Choices is a non-profit organization serving mothers and families who have lost children to violence. The mission of VBC, (Founded by Tahira Fortune), is a place of refuge for families to go and gain emotional support in coping with the devastatingly psychological toll of losing a child to violence. Tahira, (who unfortunately loss her son to violence), wanted to create a safe haven for families to have a place to come and be around those which may offer support, empathy and resources. It was very important to her to establish a space like this for others, after coming to the realization that these are services which although are very much needed, aren’t widespread for those who need this type of support and care.
Voices by Choices is a space where information, compassion and comfort can be had for the mothers and families who find it difficult to move forward after the tragic events of losing a child to brutality. Tahira welcomes all who need emotional assistance, as well as other types of information, advice or services in such a heartbreaking time and event in their lives. VBC is here to be a beacon of hope for those, as well as a source of strength for them, as long as they need it.
