You're Invited! Webinar on Trauma Informed Community Building in San Francisco's South Potrero Choice Neighborhood

Join us for a webinar on September 3rd from 1:30 – 3:00 PM!

Through a partnership with the residents of one of San Francisco’s largest and most distressed public housing sites and the Health Equity Institute at San Francisco State University, BRIDGE Housing Corporation, a Choice Neighborhoods planning grantee, has developed a Trauma Informed Community Building (TICB) model for community building that acknowledges the ongoing stress and trauma that are pervasive in communities facing poverty, ongoing violence, isolation, and limited resources. 
This webinar will provide professionals working on neighborhood revitalization initiatives valuable information about how to bring a trauma informed lens to community building activities in distressed neighborhoods. Emily Weinstein, Director of Potrero Community and Housing Development with BRIDGE Housing Corporation, and Uzuri Pease-Greene, Community Builder at BRIDGE Housing Corporation, will share the TICB model and explain how it address the challenges that trauma presents to traditional community building. They will also provide on-the-ground examples of how their model has been put to use in Potrero Hill to de-escalate chaos and stress, build social networks, and foster the community’s ability to be resilient.

You can also learn more about their TICB model in a white paper, published by BRIDGE Housing and San Francisco State University in May.
