BOSTON (CBS) – The City Of Boston is providing counseling and other resources to people impacted by Monday’s Boston Marathon bombings.

The counseling resource center has been moved to City Year offices on Columbus Avenue.

Mayra Vazquez of the Salvation Army is one of the councilors:

“We’re going to be here all day, as long as we’re needed we’ll be here,” Vazquez said.

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
