Blue poster with yellow printed text: "WTC Family Center | South Nassau Communities Hospital | www.wtcfamilycenter.org." The poster is autographed by New York Islander hockey player Mark Parrish.
The mission of the World Trade Center Family Center was to provide bereavement education and counseling support services to people who lost family members as a result of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Programs and activities were designed to support children’s and adults’ resilience and coping skills and to strengthen family bonds. The Center often organized events in conjunction with area sports teams where the families were able to meet with players. This sign was taken to a New York Islanders game where WTC Family Center participants collected autographs.
