Friday's massacre reminded us that it's necessary to come together as a community when terrible things happen. In that vein, we wanted to provide a few resources to help those who were affected by the shootings, as well as point you in the right direction if you'd like to help. We will be updating this page as we learn new information.
There has been facebook page set up to offer community resources that will be constantly updated: http://www.facebook.com/AuroraTheaterShooting
If you need help:
- Colorado Organization for Victims Assistance is available for victims of this tragedy as well. Visit their website here for more information. http://www.coloradocrimevictims.org
