Parents of Murdered Children
Parents of Murdered Children (POMC) provides emotional support for the aftermath of murder for the family and friends of a homicide victim and education to assist them through both traumatic grief and the confusing maze of the criminal justice system. We currently serve victims in Maricopa and Pinal County (Apache Junction). POMC provides a monthly newsletter, two monthly support meetings and a monthly speaker/information meeting. We provide two annual grief retreats, victims' rights vigil, holiday memorial, speaker impact panels, phone friends, crisis intervention and referrals.
