Brownsville Neighborhood Health Action Center

Old Timers Day Shooting Grief Resources

Many in the community were personally affected by the July 28 shooting at Brownsville’s annual Old Timers Day event. If you or someone you know would like counseling, there are several local resources that can help.

You can directly contact one of these resources, or your local Neighborhood Health Action Center can connect you to the mental health care and social services you need.


The Brownsville Neighborhood Health Action Center hosts a variety of programs and activities focused on the health and wellness of Brownsville residents. Our clinical partners also offer primary care services. The Action Center is part of the City's effort to promote health equity and reduce health disparities in the neighborhood.
