Mattie Rhodes Center

Program Summary:

Violence is traumatic and disproportionately affects those living in low-income, disinvested neighborhoods. Mattie Rhodes Center VIP program is guided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s framework for violence preventions: The Social-Ecological Model. This model reflects the complex interplay between individual, relationship, community, and societal factors and the necessity to act across multiple levels to reduce and prevent violence.

The goal of these supports is to assist youth and families in making significant changes in their behavior to stop the cycle of violence, seek supportive/ intervention services,   prevent youth from engaging in future acts of violence resulting in long-term and widespread changes in the Northeast community, resulting in significant, and lasting effects.

This additional COMBAT funding will be utilized to add a Clinical Therapist/Trauma Specialist to the VIP program.
