Help Line Helps People Traumatized By Parade Tragedy

A telephone help line set up by Children’s Wisconsin hospital helped some 90 individuals and families traumatized by the Waukesha Christmas parade attack.

“Kids had witnessed what had happened. If they didn’t witness it they know somebody that has. I just think it’s important because I think there’s so much going on in kids’ lives right now that we really need to support them and help them.”

Tammy Makhlouf set up the help line, which has now ceased operations. She says that people still in need of help should reach out to professionals.
