A Trauma Recovery Center opened in Coney Island on Wednesday, promising support and services for local crime victims and their families. 

The Mermaid Avenue center, part of the Jewish Community Council of Greater Coney Island, will offer free counseling and “fundamental assistance” for people grappling with the aftermath of assault, domestic violence, hate crimes, and more — with the ultimate goal of “Post-Traumatic Growth.”

“JCCGCI’s Trauma Recovery Center is changing the landscape of mental health care in underserved communities, improving access to resources for Brooklyn residents impacted by trauma and violence,” said Dr. Moshe Wiener, Executive Director of JCCGCI. “With the incredible support of Speaker Adams and the New York City Council, we have been enabled to save and improve lives across the borough, and we are just getting started.”
