HARLEM, Manhattan — Aniya survived an attempted home invasion two years ago.

She's turning her pain into purpose, founding a special support group called the Neighborhood Violence Survivor's Alliance.

They are 25 members strong and meet at a Harlem basketball court on 14th Street.

“We have been able to galvanize and bring a community together of those who have survived neighborhood violence, domestic violence, spousal violence, police brutality, even a bombing in their neighborhood,” said Aniya.

They're seeking a permanent meeting place. If you can help, get in touch on Facebook.
