WDWGFH has been featured in several local and regional media outlets. We are proud to shine a light on the positive work happening at a grassroots level to support families and communities surviving the cruel aftermath of violence in our New York City communities.

Our Community

WDWGFH is there for grieving families. Carolyn Dixon is part of a crisis management system providing support and a safe space to grieve, cope, and heal. She speaks to the community about gun violence, and the community loves her. WDWGFH is mothers, fathers, and aunts of individuals who have been murdered. No one had to study what to say or how to approach our grief. Ms. Dixon’s phone is always on, and she will calm you when the storm of emotions takes over. She will go to court with you. She will follow up to check on your well-being. I’ve formed a lifetime bond with the women that I’ve met at WDWGFH. They were welcoming and supportive and understood every emotion I felt.

After the death of my son, Greg, Carol Dixon, and WDWGFH were there for me, especially on days when I was having a challenging (emotional) day. WDWGFH helped change the community’s approach to dealing with grief and loss due to gun violence by being available even after closing hours. “Donor” generosity would help not just you if needed, but others in our community who may be in need of a secure, welcoming place to go for help as they’re grieving and learning to heal after the loss of a loved one due to gun violence.
