“The Mayor’s Assistance Center will be open today, 9.17.13 from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm at the King Greenleaf Recreation Center ( 201 N Street, SW) for anyone affected by the Navy Yard shootings. Crisis counselors and advocates will be on hand to assist with any needs, including mental health assistance, compensation assistance, and assistance with return of property left in the buildings at the Navy Yard. Crime Victim Compensation will be on hand at both sites.

The FBI has established a Family Assistance Center for the families of the deceased and seriously injured at the Residence Inn-Pentagon. Their hours of operation are unknown, but family members of missing, deceased, or seriously injured victims may go to either location for assistance.

People who are seeking emergency mental health treatment can contact the DMH Access Helpline, which is available 24 hours a day/7 days a week. Friends, family and survivors who are in need of follow-up or longer term care should contact the Wendt Center for Loss and Healing (202) 624-0010 or the Network for Victim Recovery of DC (202) 727-1727.”
