If you’ve ever considered attending our workshop and wonder if its for you, see some of the comments below from some of the people who come:

“I think the workshop has not only help me find a way to try to cope with the murder of my brother and finance. But helped bring me to people who have suffered the same loss and gave me a support system. Cory’s network has been there for vigils and the toughest times. It’s not just a group it’s like a family and I appreciate you guys 100%”

“I find the workshop to be informative helpful and comforting. I know it’s designed to be an educational workshop as opposed to a support group. However, I find that it’s also a reassurance that I’m not alone in my loss. It pretty much answers all questions I have or have had regarding coping with and dealing with my son’s murder. The presentation is excellent and shows the knowledge, wisdom, passion and empathy Bob and Shelley have on this topic. I strongly recommend this for those who, like me, are unfortunate enough to be homicide survivors.”

“Coreys network workshops has help me deal with how to learn to “walk again” in this new journey of life. Their support and understanding plays a huge part why I’m still here fighting and finding my new purpose in life. Thank you Corey’s Network!! I’m forever grateful”

“Going to Corey’s Network has allowed me to not feel so alienated, to know I’m not alone. This situation is something nobody ever dreams of and you quickly realize the average person does not know how to react to you, comfort you and at some times even be around you because of the tragedy you’ve experienced. CN allows me to talk to other who DO understand what I’m going through.”

“It was informative and I learned more about the legal system and what my rights are.”

The seminars are all free on Zoom every Monday at 6pm.
