Unleashing North Philly: Changing the Outcomes for Children Managing Trauma

Berean Presbyterian Church, U.S.A. Broad & Diamond Sts, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19122

This is the second installment of Unleashing North Philly!

A recent study by PHMC (Philadelphia Health Management Corporation) found that 40.5% of Philadelphia adults witnessed violence while growing up, which includes seeing or hearing someone being beaten, stabbed or shot. Over one-third (34.5%) of adults reported experiencing discrimination based on their race or ethnicity, while almost three in ten adults (27.3%) reported having felt unsafe in their neighborhoods or not trusting their neighbors during childhood. In all, over 37% of Philadelphia respondents reported four or more ACEs

If we're going to change outcomes in North Philadelphia it'll begin with changing the tide for our women, families, and children (specifically those managing trauma). Join us for an enlightening discussion on how to change the tide for North Philly Families.
