Don Silvestri, President of

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 Chairman Howard Dvorkin is spearheading this effort. Our website aims to continuously update services and tools for the community and beyond.

About Parkland Cares

Days after yet another deadly school shooting, grief counseling was available at the school and at walk-in facilities around Broward County, Florida, but those resources are only temporary. Parkland Cares is designed to be a collaboration of partners striving to bring counseling services and information to communities in one location. With a variety of crisis counseling and intervention services, short and long term therapy, community referrals and more available - the goal of Parkland Cares is to provide a centralized and continuously updated list of all the resources available to those coping with tragedy.
