American Red Cross Partnership
Through a partnership with American Red Cross, our case managers connect individuals affected by the Oklahoma City bombing to resources and provide direct financial assistance as needed.
Our project’s case management and financial assistance helped place a couple with three young children and going through a divorce in mental health services, including inpatient care for the father and counseling for other family members.
The mother thanked our project staff by saying, “You have saved a family.”
One client had been in inpatient care eight times until we connected her to outpatient mental health treatment and helped her find employment. Though she relapsed after celebrating six month of sobriety, we assisted her through counseling and other necessary resources in her recovery.
One of our greatest successes, however, has been the establishment of a support group for first responders to the Oklahoma City Bombing.
Our ability to provide financial support and our understanding of first responders’ needs has made the establishing of this project possible.
