Services Provided by the Community

In several cases, I had to work with airlines to provide travel for these families, many of whom were not from Florida. We connected the victims with services in the community, such as the fund that was being raised or other financial services to pay for their rent or cars or groceries.

 

I was even able to cancel some vacation plans for a victim and her friends, and got them a refund. This kind of service provides some relief from the stress of what life is going to be like after they are out of our care. Establishing a relationship with the survivors and their families gave them the support they needed in the months that followed.
