The website, maine.gov/governor/mills/Lewiston, also identifies mental health resources from the Maine Department of Health and Human Services to support anyone affected by the violence in Lewiston who may be struggling.
The website lists community funds established by the Maine Community Foundation, the L-A Metro Chamber, the United Way of Androscoggin County, and Central Maine Medical Center that will deliver financial supports to those affected by the shootings, and those organizations involved in the community and heath care response.
The site also contains information about the Family Assistance Center for victims of the tragedy that is now open at the Lewiston Armory, 65 Central Avenue in Lewiston, and a public counseling center at the Ramada Inn, 490 Pleasant Street in Lewiston.
The website aims to help channel the groundswell of state, regional and national support for the victims and families of this week’s shooting.
