Family Assistance Center set to close, transition to Resiliency Center

The Family Assistance Center (FAC), opened by the El Paso City-County Office of Emergency Management (OEM) and the American Red Cross, will be moving out of the Convention Center in Downtown El Paso at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, August 13.

The resources and services provided by the FAC will still be available directly from the public, private and nonprofit organizations while the center transitions to the upcoming El Paso Resiliency Center.

A full list of services, contact information, and their locations will be available at EPStrong.org and by dialing 2-1-1 once the center closes on Tuesday.

The FAC will remain open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., today and tomorrow, August 13. Individuals affected by the August 3 event are still encouraged to visit the Family Assistance Center to receive any needed support or services.

Information regarding the coming Resiliency Center will be provided by the City of El Paso in the next several days.

Anyone needing immediate support may call the Crisis Hotline at (915) 779-1800.

Family Assistance Center opens at Convention Center

The El Paso City-County Office of Emergency Management (OEM) and the American Red Cross are opening a Family Assistance Center (FAC) in Downtown El Paso.

Officials say the center’s purpose is to “provide the community a space to begin healing after the tragic and senseless act of violence we experienced over the weekend.”

“El Paso is strong and our residents are resilient. To help our community and region heal from this tragedy, we will be transitioning our Family Reunification Center to Family Assistance Center. We invite everyone, whether they just need to talk, or they are seeking services to help them move forward, to visit the center,” said Fire Chief Mario D’Agostino.

The Family Assistance Center will be housed at the Convention Center in Downtown, near Santa Fe Street and San Antonio Avenue.

It will be opened from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. starting August 6. Resources and services will be provided by public and private organizations.

Parking fees will be waived for individuals visiting the FAC.

Additionally, to honor the victims and first-responders who immediately responded to the tragedy, the light sculptures on Interstate 10 near Airway will light up the skies in blue. These lights are located near the site of the shooting.

Services available include:

  • Counseling/Spiritual Care
  • Health Care Assistance
  • Language Translation
  • Travel Assistance
  • Financial support
  • Legal support

Anyone needing immediate support may call (915) 779-1800.
