IF NOT US, THEN WHO?
The City of Newark is in the bottom 15 percentile of the safest cities in the United States, despite its steady decline in violent crimes over the last decade. While the offenses are being tamed, the insurmountable damage continues to linger among those who suffer due to senseless violence, whether directly or indirectly. The painful truth is that there is a need to address mental health in the inner-city, a reality that is avoided and even viewed as taboo, among minorities in particular.
Studies show that prolonged exposure to violence in any capacity can have effects on one’s physical, mental, and even behavioral development and expression.
Unfortunately, the effects of a single violent event can matriculate down through multiple generations if left untreated. Offering continuous community service for more than a decade, The HUBB Arts & Trauma Center has become a beacon of light in the city of Newark, displaying a full commitment to its residents through diverse and effective programming. We are pleased to partner with Newark's Brick City Peace Collective and its Centers of Hope for 2020 and beyond.
The HUBB HELP TRC will aid victims and offenders of traumatic events who still battle with symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder. Hollister Foundation has been committed to the fulfillment of this vision, donating a plethora of resources including financial support and also managing the architects and builders.
