Boulder Shooting

Start Date: 03/24/2021


We were requested to offer comfort and support to people affected by the Boulder Shooting along with those provided services for the victims. We arrived at temporary site that was housing Colorado Organization for Victim Assistance, COVA . With Mental health resources, crime and victim compensation, FBI Victim Services ,Red Cross Spiritual Services, Dept. of Veteran Affairs, Healing Fund, Massage Therapy and Acupuncture services. As people arrived we met they with our comfort dogs for those who wanted it. Some spent hours with the dogs. Others were greeted and went on to the other agencies. We were in the outskirts of town so it was difficult for people to travel there. The center has been moved to a location closer to the event. People were still in shock so not a lot of people attended.
