In 2004, the Winnebago County State’s Attorney’s Office, Rev. William Kerr, Barb Stone, and Carol McFeggan started this support group. The group is here for adults who have lost a loved one as a result of an aggravated dui or homicide. We have a licensed clinical social worker who facilitates the meetings and helps survivors work through grief and assist with questions that arise. One or more of the victim advocates at the State’s Attorney’s Office are also present as co-facilitators. The advocates attend to offer support and help with questions you may have about the criminal justice system.
For: Adults 18 years or older who have lost a loved one at the hands of another
When: The third Wednesday of each month from 5:30pm-7:00pm
(Please keep your contact information updated with us so we can inform you of any changes)
Where: The 7th floor of the State’s Attorney’s Office at 400 West State St. Rockford, IL
In addition to the monthly support group, an annual memorial service is held each year on the third Wednesday in April.
If you have any questions please contact a victim service provider at (815) 319-4700.
