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 families.

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.
