He went for one week, as a volunteer with the Mid-Hudson Valley Chapter of the American Red Cross, to provide counseling to immediate family members of the victims, as well as to community members. The Red Cross counseling is short-term, and those who needed more assistance were referred to community resources.</p><p> Tue, 08 Jan 2013 17:55:47 +0000 Allison Dunne 55295 at http://wamc.org Disaster Mental Health Institute Director Counseled Newtown Families
