Corey’s Network History

In July 2013, Corey Daniel Laykovich, who was just 22 years old, fell victim to an attack that occurred within three blocks of his residence. Tragically, this assault led to his demise, thus elevating the severity of the crime to homicide.

Following the tragic loss of Corey, his family was taken aback to learn that their precinct did not assign victim advocates to the surviving victims of homicide until a suspect was charged. This revelation was particularly surprising to Corey’s mother, a social worker with over 25 years of experience. Consequently, after extensive research, Corey’s family and friends established “Corey’s Network, Inc… a Foundation for Hope”. This organization, abbreviated as CNI, was officially founded on June 1, 2014. It now boasts a diverse team of professionals, each of whom is personally committed to the success of the program.
