• Social Worker: Reed Drop-In Center Has More Counselors Than Visitors

    Clinical Social Worker Stephen Beck has headed up a community drop-in center at Reed since shortly after the 12/14 tragedy. But this week he told The Newtown Bee that despite a waiting list of experienced counselors hoping to assist Newtowners through their grieving and recovery process, there are comparatively few visitors seeking their expertise.

    This news was not received well by one local mother whose daughter benefited greatly from the center, and who did not begin using the drop-in services for weeks after the incident.
