Reverend Rob Mark of Church of the Covenant is also on hand and expects a second wave of people needing someone to listen.

“There may be more need as the week goes on,” Mark said. “There may be some fear lingering around the lack of sense of who did this and why and might there be another event.”

The center is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday. People can also call the mayor’s health line, 617-534-5050, to get counseling assistance
