As we can see here and everywhere, survivors abound. And their stories can be amazing. However, each survivor will tell you that much of their achievement is due to help and support from others.

We all can help in our own way and one easy way is by going to one or all of these groups and learning about what they do. You can discover ways to help. You can volunteer; spread the word about them or donate.

Simply check out these sites for more info. And PLEASE submit any other groups/organizations that we may have overlooked or you feel need attention! This list is new and not even close to comprehensive and new ones will be added often.
