Trauma Informed Community Building: A Model for Strengthening Community in Trauma- Affected Neighborhoods

“Trauma is a set of normal human responses to stressful and threatening experiences (National Center for PTSD, 2007). Low-income and public housing residents may experience cumulative trauma resulting from daily stressors of violence and concentrated poverty, as well as historic and structural conditions of racism and disenfranchisement (Collins, et al., 2010). Public housing residents are over twice as likely as the general American population to suffer from gun violence (National Department of Housing and Urban Development [HUD], 2000). In addition, historical trauma due to a legacy of racism, residential segregation and oppression takes its toll on residents’ emotional and physical well-being (Wilson, 1987). For many adults, children and families these conditions cause chronic stress and overwhelm residents’ abilities to cope (Marmot, 2004; Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration [SAMHSA], 2013)”
