CNY Community Foundation awards $10,000 to Sept. 11 event
The Central New York Community Foundation has awarded $10,000 to CNY Gathers, the effort that will commemorate the one-year anniversary of the terrorist attacks at the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
In addition to the healing and remembrance gathering planned for Sept. 11, 2002 in Clinton Square, committee members are finalizing plans for a skill-building conference to take place Sept. 12 for health care, emergency and law enforcement professionals. The conference will address a variety of issues, including how to respond to children in times of crisis.
“Successful recovery from trauma involves identification of the loss, mourning and redefining the future,” said Kathy Kurtz, Ph.D., co chair of the CNY Gathers Committee. Kurtz directs the crisis management and trauma response program at University Hospital. “The joining of the remembrance gathering with this conference acknowledges our need for healing and to move the community forward.”
The CNY Gathers Committee comprises representatives from various county agencies and city agencies, Syracuse University and other area institutions.
