Housing Services of Kansas City

Program Summary:

Housing Services of Kansas City, a closely held 501(c)3 nonprofit of the Housing Authority of Kansas City, Missouri (HAKC), is creating a new Trauma First Aid Case Worker (TFAC) initiative to treat trauma experienced by Low Income Public Housing residents and break the cycle of domestic abuse and violence in Kansas City’s public housing.

The TFAC Worker will be sited through HAKC’s Resident Services Department and work with HAKC Public Safety officers as they respond to incident reports from HAKC’s Low-Income Public Housing and Senior Developments. The TFAC worker will work intensively for 96-120 hours after a Domestic Violence or other traumatic incident to assist the client with immediate post-traumatic needs, accessing community services, and finding additional therapeutic services. After that time, the client’s case will be transferred to the Resident Opportunity and Self-Sufficiency program for follow-up services and case management.
