Helping, Empowering, And Rebuilding Together
In response to your feedback, the Vegas Strong Resiliency Center has teamed up with a nationally recognized expert to create a community peer support program. This award-winning model will be used to develop an initiative for the worldwide Route 91 family: Helping, Empowering, And Rebuilding Together (HEART).
HEART peers will be trained to offer services on an individual basis and also through wellness webinars. They will be well-versed in evidence-based best practices to support each other and will also have the benefit and guidance of trauma-informed providers. Peer support is known to have benefits for both the supporter and the receiver, with the roles and relationship fluctuating and using access to more formal services as needed.
