The impact Friends of Firefighters has on those we serve can’t always be captured on a piece of paper. We see the impact most clearly in the faces of those who walk through the door and the difference in their demeanor after their first few visits here. Whether they make an appointment for a service or stop by to talk to their peers, over time it is evident in their body language and in their tone that their lives have been changed for the better.


"Friends of Firefighters has been of great help to me through their counseling, acupuncture, and biofeedback services. Without their help I do not know where I would be today. My family has their husband, father, and friend again."

- Angelo A., Retired FDNY firefighter

"My father was a firefighter and he never spoke about the horrors he saw but (the firefighters) can discuss them with each other at Friends of Firefighters."

- Daughter of FDNY Firefighter
