Courageous Hearts Survivor Support

The Courageous Hearts Gun Violence Survivor Support Group provides a safe and compassionate space for individuals impacted by gun violence to come together, share their experiences, and find support. Meeting monthly on the 3rd Saturday at the Franklin Township Public Library in Somerset, NJ, this group offers a supportive community where survivors can connect with others who understand their journey.
