With all due criticism of the lack of gun control in our country and with all the neccessity to change that terrible situation, we should not forget the plight of the youth, the families and friends of the slain in Newtown. Below are two organanization to support with donations. I found these two links today in an eMail from the Texas Democrats.
- Newtown Youth and Family Services
Newtown Youth & Family Services, Inc., a nonprofit mental health clinic, will be open Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. for emergency counseling for families, community members or staff involved in the Sandy HookElementary school tragedy. All donations made to the organization will benefit those affected.
- Newtown Parent Connection
The Newtown Parent Connection, a nonprofit that addresses issues of substance abuse, also offers bereavement group counseling on the first Wednesday of every month. The organization told The Huffington Post that it’s going to try to bring in additional counselors to accommodate the needs of those affected by the Sandy Hook shooting.
