The Bradley Blake Foundation will sponsor a free Homicide Support Group for surviving family members, friends, and co-workers of homicide victims.  This group will accept any person who has been affected by a violent death, not just persons residing in Berkeley County.  Parents are encouraged to bring their children who may have been directly or indirectly affected by a homicide.  There will be a therapist to assist adults and children.

Beginning July 8th, the group will meet on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month at the Berkeley Electric Cooperative Community Room located at 551 Rembert C. Dennis Boulevard in Moncks Corner, South Carolina.  We will meet from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.  Light refreshments will be served at each meeting.

Please encourage any surviving members of homicide victims that you may come in contact with to attend this group.  We feel that they will gain strength from others who have experienced the same type of loss that they have and establish a bond among themselves.  This group will also assist them with upcoming parole hearings, as well as provide information about the criminal justice system.

Interested persons may call Sylvia Blake, at 843-209-0463 or 843-567-6964.

The BSB Safe Haven Support Group sponsored a Retreat/Day of Remembrance on Sept. 24 at Short Stay Recreation Area, Joint Base Charleston in Moncks Corner, in support of the National Day of Remembrance. Survivors of homicides (parents, grandparents, children, and siblings) were invited to attend this free event hosted by the BSB Safe Haven Support Group and the Bradley Blake Foundation. Families wore T-shirts displaying pictures of their loved ones, made memory books and fellowshipped through the sharing of love, and stories of their loved one. The day ended with a candlelight vigil and releasing of balloons in honor of those killed by violence. The BSB Safe Haven Support Group is a survivor’s support group that meets at 6 p.m. on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at the Berkeley Electric Community Room in Moncks Corner.
