Gov. Greg Abbott says Texas will spend $5 million to set up a long-term family resiliency center in Uvalde. The governor made the announcement on Wednesday. The center will provide a range of community services such as crisis counseling, psychological first aid, and behavioral health services for survivors, first responders, and other traumatized people.
"Texas continues providing all available resources to fully assist and support the Uvalde community through their heartbreak," said Governor Abbott. "The Family Resiliency Center in Uvalde County will play an integral role in our mission to ensure those in mourning and healing following last week’s tragedy have easily accessible and readily available resources. Every member of the Uvalde community will have access to the critical mental health resources they need at this center as they process and heal during this difficult time."
