Siblings of Murdered Siblings is a group of siblings, cousins and friends around the world who have lost either a brother, sister or a loved one to murder. Resources are limited, and many of us are alone. Our goal is to change this, to help improve the lives of those impacted, giving survivors a voice and a shoulder to lean on in their new, endless journey of grief.
SOMS was created by Alexandra Barry after her brother James Barry was murdered. After searching the internet for support for siblings she found that it was seriously lacking. It is our goals to bring more services to sibling survivors. We provide survivors by providing Survivor Care Packages to either those going to trial and to others who never even had an arrest. As we grow nationally, each state will start with a local chapter to hold a one-hour meeting once a month, and hopefully, some fun outings (i.e., bowling, bbq’s, etc.). Weekly one-hour support/Q&A sessions will be held each Tuesday at 7:30 PM Eastern, via Zoom. Check out our Facebook page for the link. We will eventually have a website full of resources, and hope to soon be sponsoring events such as annual walks to raise awareness and take a stand against domestic violence. We would like to have survivor assistance programs where we will fund for a survivor to receive therapy services, cover court fees, provide Survivor Care Packages, and to pay for crime scene clean-up. The vision of SOMS is to develop and promote restorative justice in criminal justice systems around the United States.
