Help for the victims of the August 3, 2019 mass shooting in El Paso does not end when money donated to them has been given out. For many survivors, recovery is long-term. As if grief, guilt, stress, and shock aren’t enough, many survivors will deal with medical, mental, and other health care needs — for years to come.
The El Paso Community Foundation created the El Paso Long Term Care Fund to help those struggling with the unexpected burdens created by the massacre. The El Paso Long Term Care Fund will be pooled with other resources to support the survivors of the shooting that forever changed our city and region.

The new fund is one of three the El Paso Community Foundation has created in response to the August 3 massacre. The El Paso Shooting Victims’ Fund was set up shortly after the first reports of the shooting. The deadline for donations to the Shooting Victims’ Fund is Monday, November 25. The funds are being combined into One Fund El Paso, which will distribute donated money to victims by mid-December.
