It is common for people to experience strong emotional reactions after a natural disaster, such as overwhelming grief, fears, intense anxiety, hopelessness, anger, or a loss of faith. While several organizations and churches are working to provide physical relief and resources to those in need, we also want to provide you with emotional and psychological support. In addition to professional counseling, we are giving some presentations on how you and your family can cope with the impact of Hurricane Harvey and the flooding. More dates and locations are forthcoming.
