About September 11th Families Association
Not-for-profit organization was founded by New York City Fire Department families in November 2001 to provide information to all 9/11 families. Our mission is to unite the September 11th community, present evolving issues, and share resources for long-term recovery. The Association maintains an active database of 4,500 immediate family members of victims who died on September 11, 2001 at the World Trade Center, Pentagon, and passengers on the four planes. Since June 2002 the Association has published a quarterly newsletter of resources and information for 9/11 families. The Tribute WTC Visitor Center is a project of the September 11th Families' Association that offers visitors to the World Trade Center site a place where they can connect with people from the September 11th community. Through walking tours, exhibits and programs, the Tribute WTC Visitor Center offers Person to Person History, linking visitors who want to understand and appreciate these historic events with members of the 9/11 community who experienced them firsthand. Family members, survivors, recovery workers, volunteers, and residents of Lower Manhattan volunteer at the Tribute Center to share their personal experiences with visitors.
