Community Resilience Program
The Community Resilience Program provides valuable resources that foster a peaceful and supportive environment by providing psychological first aid training, peer support, and benefits assistance to families in distressed communities. We work collaboratively with CBOs to provide resources that address socio-economic issues such as access to healthcare, food insecurity, mental and emotional health, pathways for employment, peer support, and more. Our goal is to create lasting, positive change to ensure our community thrives.
