Israel Provides Assistance in Aftermath of the Stoneman Douglas Tragedy

February 26th, 2018 - jfsbroward

The State of Israel has brought specialists to Broward County from the Israel Trauma Coalition (ITC) to assist the Stoneman Douglas community with “Handling the Aftermath.” A joint project of the Consulate General of Israel in Miami, Jewish Federation of Broward County and Behavioral Health Associates of Broward-Counseling Centers of Goodman Jewish Family Services, this program is designed to assist in our time of need.  The ITC brings deep experience and insight, having responded to crises, tragedy and natural disasters worldwide, including the tragic shooting in Las Vegas, flooding in Houston, and following  the tsunami in Sri Lanka, just to name a few.

The ITC is conducting sessions to help the helpers in Broward County, including teachers, counselors, clinicians, clergy, social organizations and first responders.  They will share their unique knowledge at various times and locations throughout this week to assist the community as we embark upon both short- and long-term recovery efforts.
