Some tragedies never end. Neither should our support.

“Our goal is to make it easier for the survivors, their families and the community to easily find the resources needed to piece their lives back together again.”

Don Silvestri,
Parkland Cares Founding Member

Our town, Parkland, Florida, has been rocked by a tragedy on February 14, 2018. Long after the media coverage fades, the wounds will remain. Recovering from such a tragedy doesn’t happen in mere days. It can take months and even years.

Why Parkland Cares is Necessary: Parkland Cares is designed to provide a centralized resource to help cope with tragedy. Parkland Cares is an easy way for people who need help to get connected with the community service providers that can help with crisis counseling, intervention services, short and long term therapy, trauma counseling and more by calling 954-740-MSD1 (6731).

Our Need: Trauma care and long term mental health services extend from the children and teachers at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School (MSD) to the parents and the community-at-large.
