Families for Safe Streets Outreach Program

Have you been personally impacted by a traffic crash? If you have, you are not alone. Families for Safe Streets is comprised of individuals who have lost loved ones or were injured in a crash, including pedestrians, cyclists and others. Families for Safe Streets was formed five years ago to advocate to change the culture of reckless driving in our city and now also provides an array of support services. Every 44 hours, someone is killed in NYC as a result of a crash. Over 150 people are injured each day. Get help with logistical challenges and be supported by people who understand. Call (844) FSS-PEER or email info@familiesforsafestreets.org for more information. All support services are offered at no charge.
