The Community Resilience Coalition includes members of the community who believe that when trauma happens to one, it
happens to all. We support, educate, and engage community
organizations who serve Columbus including mental health providers, community
organizations, city government, and community activists. Collectively, our work
will increase sensitivity, awareness and build resilience in neighborhoods and
We help Columbus become a Trauma Informed
Community. We envision neighborhoods that embrace and understand the impact of
trauma from schools to libraries, our community will be able to identify and
intervene when trauma occurs to promote healing and resiliency.
