UVALDE, Texas – They’ve been in Uvalde since it happened — a mass shooting at Robb Elementary School, which left the small town torn apart by grief, anger, uncertainty and suspicion.

Among the first to arrive on day one was the Family Service Rural Team.

The agency, said to be the oldest human service nonprofit in San Antonio since 1903, has been in Uvalde and surrounding rural areas for more than two decades.

Spokesman Wynn Hoke said Family Service was seeing individuals and families that day, along with offering its existing office-based counseling services, which deal with trauma, anxiety, PTSD and more, at no cost.

The need now is still high, so Family Services has opened a new location at a Walmart in Uvalde.
