April brings attention to the effects of crime and trauma with National Crime Victims' Rights Week from April 18-24th. ARCHS wants to highlight its Neighborhood Healing Network program for the entire month of April, and remind St. Louisans that help is available year-round.
The Neighborhood Healing Network is a unique program because it provides wrap-around services tailored to an individual or family who has either been directly or indirectly impacted by crime and violence. Community resource specialists at each of our five non-profit hubs can connect residents of St. Louis City or County to victim services, social services, trauma workshops, and support groups for both the general public and professionals in different sectors.
All Neighborhood Healing Network Sector Trainings and Public Workshops ensure the following for attendees:
- Develop a deeper understanding of trauma and its impact.
- Gain trauma-sensitive practices and strategies to avoid re-traumatizing individuals who have experienced trauma and/or victimization.
- Learn to navigate community resources and networks to support the immediate and long-term needs of individuals who experience trauma.
