Location to help marathon bombing victims opens in August

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON (WHDH) - The state is working with Boston Medical Center to establish a new free assistance center for people affected by last year's Boston Marathon bombings.

Attorney General Martha Coakley, the Massachusetts Office for Victim Assistance and Boston Medical Center officials are formally announcing the new facility on Wednesday. Also attending will be bombing survivors who helped develop the concept.

The Massachusetts Resiliancy Center will offer therapies, services and trainings to people affected by the bombings, including the injured and their family members, first responders and members of the general public who were directly or indirectly impacted by the bombings or events that followed.

The two bombings at the marathon finish line killed three people and injured more than 260 people. Others have also reported lingering traumatic effects.
