Free Supportive Counseling
Impacted By The Ellicott City Flood
On July 30, 2016, shop owners, employees and residents of Main Street Ellicott City were impacted by the devastating flood. Understandably, during the initial period of clean-up and reconstruction, most people have been focused on the physical recovery and refurbishing of what remains.
At the same time, the emotional needs of those who lived and worked on Main Street have been tremendous. The memories of the dangers of the flood itself, an overwhelming sense of grief and the uncertainty of what the future will bring still trouble the hearts and minds of many community members.
