Parents Of Murdered Children

The National Organization of Parents Of Murdered Children, (POMC),  provides nationwide assistance to anyone who has lost a loved one to murder.  Founded in 1978, POMC is headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio, and is the only national self-help organization designed solely to offer emotional support, information and advocacy about surviving the loss of a loved one to murder.  POMC currently has over 60 chapters and 100 contact people throughout the United States.

Tragically, each year an estimated 14,827 persons were murdered nationwide in 2012. One murder occurs every 35.4 minutes in America.  POMC is on the front lines of providing on-going support and services to survivors. I ask that you graciously consider supporting our important work so that it may continue.

Some of the programs and services POMC offers are:

·         On-going emotional support

·         Monthly chapter support group meetings   throughout the country

·         Parole Block Program (PBP)

·         Second Opinion Services (SOS)

·         Murder Is Not Entertainment (MINE)

·         Court accompaniment

·         Training for community groups, criminal justice professionals, medical professionals, etc., on the problems faced by survivors

·         Annual National Conference

·         Ask the Expert

·         Survivors newsletter

·         National Day of Remembrance (DOR) for Murder Victims

·         Memorial vigils

·         Public policy and advocacy

·         Information on the criminal justice process

 POMC is a leader in helping to promote crime victims’ rights and works to ensure all victims are treated with dignity and respect.  But it is difficult to accomplish our mission without support. 

The Mission of POMC:
POMC makes the difference through on-going emotional support, education, prevention, advocacy, and awareness.

POMC Vision Statement:
To provide support and assistance to all survivors of homicide victims while working to create a world free of murder.

Membership is open to those who have been cruelly bereaved by the murder of a loved one. Professionals who are in frequent contact with grieving families are also welcome to join.

With gratitude,
