Oregon District Shooting: Support & mental health resources

The aftermath of the horrendous Oregon District Shootings has left us all heartbroken, numb and with a sense of helplessness.

It is normal to feel all these things while grieving the tragedy in our beloved city!

In times like these, LOVE & UNITY is what really needs to be brought to the center and spread like wildfire. Many our our fellow Daytonian's need our help and support. Below is a list of community resources to help during this time of healing!
