Submitted by the resident group, Emotional Support Team – May 2020
The Emotional Support Team (EST) is composed of Panorama resident volunteers who have professional training and experience helping people through times of trauma. During a disaster such as the current pandemic, they are available to provide emotional support for people who may be having a difficult time enduring isolation, anxiety, fear, crippling frustration or similar feelings.
The EST will work with Panorama Social Services Staff in times of disaster to complement their program and will make referrals to them for further assistance when requested. It is not the purpose of the EST to provide long-term care.
To request assistance from the EST, dial x6006 from any Panorama phone or 360-413-6006 from a cell phone or any landline phone. This telephone number is only for leaving a voice message, however, members of the EST will check for messages on a daily basis and respond as quickly as possible.
