Communication & Compassion

Assisting Victims & Families in Crisis Situations

The capacity and competence to respond in a crisis is critical – whether it is a large-scale event or a more contained incident. Assisting victims and families requires compassion coupled with expertise in behavioral health and crisis counseling. On behalf of your organization, we support victims and families in times of crisis by:

  • Providing a central access portal for affected individuals
  • Coordinating briefings with local authorities and safety personnel
  • Gathering and distributing information to victims and families
  • Reducing media access to the assistance areas
  • Arranging for family travel, lodging and memorial needs
  • Easing problematic family dynamics that sometimes emerge during stressful events

We focus on the needs of individuals impacted by the incident, so you can focus on organizational continuity and recovery plans.

Trained Experts

At a critical time, our professional counselors and crisis managers address victim’s needs in a timely and caring fashion.

In-person support where and when it is needed. We maintain a network of over 10,000 responders nationwide and an additional 5,000 internationally.

Population Segregation

The simplest details are often overlooked. Based on years of experience, we have devised methods for segregating those receiving welcome news from bad news, all provided in private, appropriate settings.
