What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Youth Violence Outreach (YVO) Initiative

The Youth Violence Outreach Initiative provides free trauma-informed services (including individual therapy, group counseling, and mentoring) to Philadelphia youth who have experienced family and/or community violence. The program serves youth ages 8-22, with a special emphasis on young victims of color, a population who are more likely to be exposed to violence yet less likely to have access to services that can effectively address trauma. This initiative promotes social justice by reducing the stigma around trauma and by providing supportive services that build resiliency and hope for youth in our community that have been impacted by violence.

K-12 (5-19 years)
