Individual and Family Resources

At times families feel left alone when their first responder is in crisis. We can offer resources to individuals and family members through the journey of healing.


Agency Consultation

Critical Incidents can easily overwhelm agencies no matter the size. With our expreinced team members, we offer tailored consultation for agencies on how to best handle critical incidents. This will allow for first responders to heal. Unaddressed and non-validated responses to critical incidents can be detrimental to an agency.
