October Special Collection – Long Beach Trauma Recovery Center

The Trauma center provides free mental health support for all in need.

The mission of the Long Beach Trauma Recovery Center is to make quality trauma-focused mental health services available to all who are in need. They work with individuals, families, and children who have been victims of crime or trauma. All services are free of charge. The LBTRC provides counseling and mental health services for these clients and also provides some case management services such as assistance with housing, obtaining Victim’s Compensation funds, and locating support services for medical or other needs.

To learn more about the LBTRC please join us live or via Zoom on October 10 after service (11:30), when cofounder Debora Luken will join us to talk about their  work and take questions.
