Counseling services available for those impacted by Destiny USA shooting

Local News

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) For those impacted by the shooting at Destiny USA mall on Friday, the following locations have offered support for those in need.

“Trauma is real, and unfortunately for people, there’s not a safe place to unpack that. So you walk around carrying those emotions,” said Pastor Daren Jaime of People’s AME Zion Church. “So prayerfully, us opening our doors and churches across Syracuse gives people the opportunity to speak to those issues, what they’re feeling and probably get some healing and help in a devastating time.”
