Support in Time of Trauma

On Monday, October 25th our community experienced a horrible tragedy, one that we are grappling with today, and will likely continue to for days and weeks to come. Our families, friends and neighbors experienced trauma that no one should ever have to live through. Our city is holding each of you in our hearts. Below are resources to connect you with mental health support, opportunities to donate and more.

If there are additional resources that you would like to add, please contact us.


Victim-Witness Coordinators
Victim-Witness Coordinators from the Boise Police Department, Ada County Sheriff’s Office, Meridian Police Department and FACES of Hope Crisis Counselors and CVC personnel are available at Boise Town Square ready to assist victims who are returning to work or to the mall.

Crime Victims Compensation
Victim-Witness Coordinators can help individuals fill out a Crime Victims Compensation application to receive services, referrals and crisis counseling if needed. A link to that form is available here. You do not need to visit a victim witnesses coordinator to apply. Send completed forms to or via fax to 208-332-7559.

Coping After Mass Violence
Mass violence incidents, where several people are injured and killed, affect everyone in the community. Over time, most people begin to feel better and return to normal routines, but knowing about the impact of mass violence can help you take care of yourself and others. The National Child Traumatic Stress Network offers some helpful information. Learn more
