SAMHSA Trauma Resilient Community Project

The TRC Initiative is a city-wide program, funded by SAMHSA, and managed by the Office for Safe and Healthy Neighborhoods, that seeks to promote resilience and equity for Louisville’s youth and families disproportionately affected by trauma, race-based trauma, systemic inequities, violence, and civil unrest.

Implementation partners include the University of Louisville’s Kent School of Social Work, Centerstone Kentucky, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, the Center for Trauma Resilient Communities, and the Treatment and Services Adaptation Center for Resilience.

This initiative will (1) enhance leadership and capacity for organizations to sustain a trauma-informed system of care, (2) increase knowledge and skills of personnel who make referrals and/or provide services to youth and families regarding trauma, racial inequity, community violence, and related services, (3) provide trauma-focused intervention services to children and families impacted by violence, and (4) evaluate the impact of the project.

To achieve these goals, the TRC project will: 

  1. Develop a community-engaged leadership advisory board that will increase trauma awareness among community leaders
  2. Engage in trauma-informed community and referral source training to develop a common language, build engagement within the community, and establish a safe communication process for collaborators 
  3. Activities, services, and outreach efforts will target West and South Louisville communities where youth and families disproportionately experience trauma, violence, systemic inequities, and civil unrest.
