"Project Rebound" continues to help those affected by oil spill

MOBILE, AL (WSFA) - A state-wide initiative continues to aid those affected by last year's oil spill by offering counseling to help in emotional recovery.

"Project Rebound" was implemented following the oil spill on the coast and remains highly active.

While "Project Rebound" still receives as many as 300 calls a month from Baldwin and Mobile counties the numbers are down from 800 calls, months after the oil spill. Organizers expect that number to rise as the summer tourism season comes to a close.

The "Project Rebound" program is expected to continue through 2013, meeting the needs during a 5 year recovery span of the coast.
