$25,000 FOCUS Pittsburgh: Trauma Informed Community Development (TICD) Implementation
PROGRAM: 2016 Catalytic
GRANTEE: FOCUS Pittsburgh
In spring, 2015, we awarded $50,000 to FOCUS Pittsburgh to support the planning and pilot phase of the TICD Initiative. TICD is a comprehensive strategy that has been developed with the support and input of community members and stakeholders over the past two years. After completing the Consultative Workshop on the block of 2900 Webster Avenue in the Hill District this summer, a year-long H.O.P.E. Plan was created based on the input and feedback from block residents at that workshop. Through the H.O.P.E. Plan, Health & Well-being, Opportunity Making, Placemaking and Engaging Influencers, it is anticipated that people will begin to live healthier and be healthier – in all spheres physically, mentally/emotionally, relationally, socio-economically and spiritually. With this funding, FOCUS Pittsburgh will be able to provide the additional implementation support needed to complete the H.O.P.E. Plan throughout the next year. Additionally, this support will enable FOCUS Pittsburgh to expand this program to additional blocks within the Hill District that express interest.
