What's New?


Important information for Minnesotans who were at the Harvest Festival shooting in Las Vegas last year.

The State of Nevada has identified 101 ticket holders from Minnesota who possibly attended the concert on Oct. 1, 2017.

Anyone who was present at the shooting, whether they were injured or not, is encouraged to submit a financial assistance application with the Nevada Victims of Crime Program.  Applications must be submitted by Oct. 1, 2018.

Many survivors of mass violence and trauma seek counseling months or years after an incident. Even if survivors don’t feel they need assistance now, they need to submit an application by Oct. 1 in case they seek help in the future.

The program will help pay for out-of-pocket expenses such as medical bills or even counseling co-pays.

Information can be found at: VegasStrongRC.org, the Resiliency Center’s website or (833) 299-2433.
