Project Hope Counselors Come to Broad Channel
Hurricane Sandy took an emotional and mental toll on residents in addition to taking personal property. With many still in need of help, those from Project Hope and St. John’s Episcopal Hospital want residents to know that they’re not alone.
Project Hope Crisis Counselor’s from St. John’s Episcopal Hospital will be available to meet with Hurricane Sandy victims in Broad Channel who want to discuss struggles after Sandy. The counselors will be on hand on an ongoing basis on Mondays and Thursdays from 12:30- 1:30 p.m..
Project Hope Crisis Counseling was started by the New York State Office of Mental Health in November 2012. Funded by FEMA, the project offers free and confidential supportive counseling to Hurricane Sandy victims in New York City and Nassau, Suffolk, Rockland, and Westchester Counties. Project Hope Crisis Counseling across the region is expected to extend into the fall.
