Overview

In partnership with community-based organizations, the Wraparound Project provides services to create social capital in individuals and communities affected by violence. Social capital is defined as features of the community such as trust, norms and networks that boost actions for the mutual benefit of community members. Investing in social capital, by fostering life skills, confidence, empowerment, and a sense of advocacy for one's community, is recognized as a strategy to improve population health.

 

These are some of the services provided:

  1. Crisis response services along with the City's Crisis Response Network and crisis home visits.
  2. Vocational training programs via Art Workshops and Friends of the Urban Forest.
  3. Employment opportunities throughout the region.
