The Trauma Healing Project

The Trauma Healing Project was initiated 14 years ago by a coalition of survivors, lay community members, professionals, students and researchers concerned about the negative impact of trauma on individual and community health.  We believe that in order to improve the quality of life in our communities and to end violence and abuse, healing and recovery must be understood, promoted, and accessible.

The Trauma Healing Project Incorporated as a 501(c)3 in 2006.
