20th Anniversary Documentary

Lisa Orloff October 13, 2021

A story over triumph, over tragedy.

Kirstin Cole of CW11 narrates the history of the World Cares Center, from citizens spontaneously helping, to the formation of September Space, a healing center that served over 45,000 rescue workers, survivors, & family members. The storyline continues with global responses & the programs that train citizens to emerge as disaster volunteers, & train leaders to manage crises including service-learning with John Jay College of Criminal Justice. This is a story of triumph over tragedy. The giving spirit of the 9/11 community lives on & impacts communities locally & around the world.

Thus far the documentary has been aired on The John D McKean Fireboat, John Jay College of Criminal Justice, and the New York University as part of their 9.11.2001 commemoration.

You can view the documentary on and learn why we created the Ready Responders Network and the importance of staying connected.

Many thanks,
