Thanks to supporters like you, over the past ten years, Friends of Firefighters has offered therapeutic and mental health services and resources to active and retired firefighters and their families. We continue to respond to calls; the need is still there.
With your continued support, Friends of Firefighters will offer critical services and long-term support to NYC firefighters and their families – such as confidential counseling, peer support, and wellness services. Through private support, almost all of our services are provided free of charge and we benefit from a strong corps of civilian and firefighter volunteers who believe in our mission and commitment. Please consider joining us in making mental health and wellness services as accessible as possible to this community.
