The purpose of LOSS Team is to provide immediate support and resources, as well as an installation of hope, to survivors as close to the time of their loss as possible. We are available to provide postvention advocacy and resources to bereaved loved ones either on-scene or when one is ready to find help.
LOSS Team members meet once a month to debrief. Team members attend regular training to maintain their skills, and take regular grief and anxiety inventories to ensure that exposure to the program is not harmful to their well-being.
If you would like more information about LOSS Team, utilizing our services, becoming a member, or training for your organization, please call (682) 263-LOSS (5677).
