The Family Assistance
Education & Research Foundation
Our mission is to help ensure prompt, effective support following crises and disasters involving an organization, its employees and customers, and anyone else affected. We accomplish this objective by:
Providing the planning, training, and resources needed for an organization to effectively assist people involved in any crisis or disaster;
Learning what is helpful, and what is not, from the true experts – survivors, family members, responders, and others in the “ripple” that encompasses all who are affected by a tragedy; and
The Foundation recognizes the emotional connection that exists between a company and survivors (passengers, customers. employees, and all families) when a tragedy occurs in business operations. Reaching out quickly and compassionately, we assist organizations in exercising their power to help families regain control over their lives. The Foundation and sister company, Aviem International, work together in conjunction with local authorities and other agencies to provide support for those at risk during and following a crisis. Our support models are based on research spanning 30 plus years with survivors of tragedies involving business and industry.
