The Lafayette Consolidated Government has established a family information center at 911 Lee Avenue, in Downtown Lafayette, to provide information, resources and crisis professionals to persons in the Greater Lafayette area who are having difficulty dealing with this week’s tragic events.
The family information center is provided at no charge to persons requesting assistance. The center will open at 1:00 pm Sunday, July 26, 2015, at the former Whitney Bank Building in downtown Lafayette.
First responders, families and friends of those lost and injured, or those simply experiencing problems coping may benefit from meeting with a family specialist.
Beginning Monday, the center will be open daily from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm, until further notice.
The service is funded through LCG’s insurance policy to help the Greater Lafayette community begin the process of community healing.
Family information center professionals are also able to provide resource information for local counseling services throughout Lafayette and Southwest Louisiana as needed.
