Building Resilient Communities through Trauma Informed Development

Knowing that trauma creates a barrier to the development of Pittsburgh’s Black communities, Neighborhood Resilience Project believes Trauma Informed Community Development framework can establish and promote resilient, healing, and healthy communities so that people can be healthy enough to sustain opportunity and realize their potential. As they work to create a stronger community by engaging, healing and empowering individuals and families, Staunton Farm Foundation is proud to support their mission.

Rooted in the teachings of the Orthodox Church and inspired by the American Civil Rights Movement, Neighborhood Resilience Project works to support the transformation of neighborhoods from Trauma Affected Communities to Resilient Healing and Healthy Communities through Trauma Informed Community Development (TICD).

To make their TICD work possible and truly embedded in the community, Neighborhood Resilience Project received funding from Staunton Farm Foundation to hire a Trauma Informed Community Development Program Manager. The role continues to be critical in implementing micro-community interventions and creating thriving relationships.
