Resources Amid the Tragedy in Orlando

At Pillars, we offer a number of services to help in times of crisis or grief.

The shooting that occurred on June 12, 2016, is truly tragic. As a diverse organization, we are mourning the loss of life in Photo In Memoriam of Orlando VictimsOrlando. Some of our staff, board, clients, and supporters have been touched more directly than others; all of us are touched by the sadness of the loss of life, the targeting of innocent people, and perhaps an intentional act of rage against a specific group of people.

It is more important than ever to stand together as a community. We are reaffirming our commitment to be a welcoming organization and to make connections with those around us in a way that empowers and uplifts.

In these complex times, it can be difficult to know what to do to comfort and reassure ourselves and our loved ones.
