IKTC Foundation-Victims United Inc Partners for Peace is a Support Program for Survivors of Homicide Victims focusing on the needs of survivors and the reality of murder and its aftermath.
The epidemic of youth violence in the United States Virgin Islands is taking a toll on the Territory’s health. It results in emotional and physical injuries, permanent disability and death, consumes enormous health care resources and will diminish and ultimately destroy the quality of life for individuals, families and the entire community.
By the United States Department of Health criteria, the United States Virgin Islands is a “distressed” community with problems that equals the national average according to recent reports on the homicide rate per capita.
The need for immediate action on the behalf of survivors of victims of homicide, a psychological community, scattered across the Territory. This population is in need for specific and targeted intervention that starts with the death notification and goes far beyond the burial. Survivors are fronted with tremendous upheaval and pain, which can lead to numerous difficult emotional and physical challenges.
For these reasons we've embark on the journey to bring hope and healing through support and community enhancement.
The Issachar K Tigre Chinnery Foundation-Victims United Inc. Partners for Peace, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization established in 2009 as a support program for survivors of homicide victims. Our objective is to intervene and provide support through a correlation of various outreach programs and services for survivors of homicide victims and other victims of crime.
This Foundation is a multi-facet organization working in partnership with the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute to develop programs, activities and initiatives that teach and instill the values of peace and enrich the lives of our young people.
We assist and empower survivors with tools that can assist them in rebuild their lives and also be instrumental in rebuilding their communities through education, outreach and through collaboration and Policy Advocacy.
To make available programs and initiatives that maintain our vision and commitment improve social well-being and to support and educate the community about the consequences of violence and alternatives to violence.
Social well-being cannot be achieved under the threat of violence, community unrest or the lack of essentials such as safe streets, housing and access to healthcare and other related services.
To create and support an environment where people are esteemed and their lives valued and where families can live in peace and unity.
