About FTAP

Developed in 1991 by Betty Major-Rose, the Family Trauma Advocacy Program was birthed from her tragic experience when she lost her daughter Ginneria to murder. While reaching out to assist families with the same fate, and hearing their painful experiences, Betty learned that she too was not alone and there was a tremendous need to assist families that are thrust into circumstances that are not only traumatic but life changing.


Who We Are

The Family Trauma Advocacy Program is a not-for-profit, hospital/community-based organization that utilizes trained volunteers to offer support to families who have lost a loved one to a violent death.

Our Mission

The mission of FTAP is S.E.E.E – to Support, Encourage, Educate, and Empower homicide/violent crime survivors in hopes of eliminating feelings of hopelessness and helplessness, and to lead families toward a healthy recovery.
