Community Resilience Newport News

Once again I had a unique opportunity to lead our Faith and Community Based Youth Violence Reduction program in Newport News, Virginia.  Unfortunately, I didn’t have an opportunity to visit the historical triangle of Williamsburg, Yorktown, and Jamestown while in the area, next time!

There is nothing fake here but a dedicated group of folks from diverse; community, faith, municipal and police organizations working together to try and build community resilience and save lives. It is always humbling when we start talking about the science of trauma and stress in youth just how many of the responders identify the trauma and stress in themselves.

Reminding us that we need to heal the healers first.IMG_2856
