New Resiliency Center Supports Marathon Bombing Survivors
More than a year and a half has passed since the bombing of the Boston Marathon, but hundreds of people are still struggling with wounds and scars both physical and psychological. Now, there’s a place where they can come together to support each other and get help from professionals — free of charge. It’s called the Massachusetts Resiliency Center, which opened this past summer, thanks to a $1.9 million federal grant.
Services can be accessed through the Resiliency Center at (844) STRONG-1 or by visiting MOVA’s website at www.mass.gov/mova.
