“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, President of Debt.com
Our town has been rocked by a tragedy. But long after the media coverage fades, the wounds will remain.
Parkland Cares has been compiling this list of professional, reputable, and long-term counseling for anyone who needs it. Recovering from such tragedy doesn’t happen in mere days. It can take months and even years.
30 year resident of Parkland and Debt.com Chairman Howard Dvorkin is spearheading this effort. Our website aims to continuously update services and tools for the community and beyond.
