As part of its mission to improve the quality of life in urban communities, UROC introduced the Trauma Recovery Project in spring 2013 to create a roadmap for recovery from such trauma through a comprehensive strategy for positive change in the lives of families and the community as a whole.

Building on community expertise and the University’s research in the area of healing and historical trauma, the project brought together teams of families, University researchers, community leaders, healthcare professionals, and representatives from the faith community in an effort to identify trauma-related issues that are important to the Northside community. These teams made up the six workgroups whose members carried the project forward.
