For the past several months, the Center’s staff has been called on to assist with the response efforts for the church shooting in Sutherland Springs. Counselors from the Center were called on immediately to provide guidance and support for teachers and counselors in both La Vernia and Floresville schools and has continued to be on-site in the community since that time.
The Children’s Bereavement Center, in partnership with the University of Texas in San Antonio’s Academy for Crisis and Trauma Training, is pleased to announce the opening of Paloma Place, a counseling center in Wilson County. This collaborative partnership is funded in part through a grant from the Victims of Crime Act, Whataburger, a gift from the San Antonio Area Foundation and designated support from caring friends of the Center. Paloma Place is a replication of the program established in San Antonio in 1997 and will utilize innovative programming for children and families developed by the Children’s Bereavement Center of South Texas.
Paloma Place is now open to the community and ready to greet you with open arms.
