Community Trauma

In June 2018,  CCFC hosted the first Trauma-Informed Community Development (TICD) Institute, an initiative of the Catholicism and the Common Good project, funded in part by the Henry Luce Foundation.

The week-long institute focused on helping communities that have been fragmented by traumatic events to come together and become healthy enough to sustain opportunity and realize their potential. Representatives from seven agencies from across the country, including the Virginia Department of Health, attended the forum.

The University of Pittsburgh and the Buhl Foundation also contributed to the event. The TICD model began from the 2013 Rice on the Road Lecture Series, which was co-sponsored by the CCFC and Duquesne's Center for Community-Engaged Teaching and Research.
