Pulse Center Has Helped 600 Victims, Families

By

ORLANDO, Fla.- Orlando officials say an assistance center set up to help the survivors and families of victims from the Pulse nightclub shooting has served more than 600 individuals.

City officials say that starting Monday an agency will be at the assistance center to help survivors and victims’ family members apply for unemployment benefits from the state.

That’s in addition to almost three dozen agencies set up at the Camping World Stadium to help survivors and families with short- and long-term needs.

A gunman fatally shot 49 patrons and injured another 53 individuals more than a week ago at the Orlando gay nightclub.

The assistance center is open this week through Wednesday.
