The lives of El Pasoans were forever changed by the August 3rd, 2019 tragedy.

As the two-year mark approaches, El Paso United Family Resiliency Center (FRC), the County of El Paso and the City of El Paso aim to unite El Pasoans in order to honor those we lost and send love to those deeply impacted. As partners, we hope to promote community-wide healing and foster an appreciation for El Paso’s rich history and heritage. Together, we can light a path toward long-term resiliency.

We are El Paso strong and together we heal.

would like to speak to a behavioral health professional with concerns regarding this tragic incident that has impacted our community.

Additional Resources


As part of our long-term goals, community partners are focused on increasing the understanding of mental health by providing education on the signs of trauma-induced stress as well as removing the stigma surrounding mental illnesses. We encourage El Pasoans of any ages and any backgrounds to recognize that mental health is equally as important as physical health and view the resources compiled by our Resiliency Navigators.
