Who we are:
Support 7 is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization of volunteers who have been serving South Snohomish County for more than 40 years, helping victims, survivors and their families move from crisis and trauma to hope and healing.
What we do:
Directly and practically partnering with local fire/police/first responder agencies, we help people in need at the moment of crisis, filling the gap of “Compassionate Care”, taking people from time zero to an upward trajectory of healing and hope.
How we do it:
Being dispatched by Snocom 911, we respond in the moment of crisis assisting first responders as liaison in “on-scene” incidents helping victims and survivors connect the dots to practical next steps.
- A private place to get out of the weather, away from onlookers and potential media.
- A respite for first responders, and a transition place for necessary interviews and some quick refreshment.
- A smooth connection to resources (such as funeral, medical examiner office, grief and counseling resources, local assistance for housing / clothing, Red Cross, local churches, and more).
- A burden lifted through sensitive death notifications
