Chester Community Coalition
Chester, Pennsylvania, USA
MissionTo heal the psychological and emotional impact of homicides and reduce trauma-related reactive violence in the City of Chester, PA
What We DoWe provide trauma-informed therapy to City of Chester families where a loved one has been assaulted or murdered. Participating families receive case-management support, as well as door-to-door transportation to appointments, childcare, and supper on therapy nights.
We also work collaboratively with other violence prevention organizations to enhance the collective impact of our work to transform the City of Chester.
We believe wholeheartedly in the possibility of recovery from trauma, we believe in the creativity and resilience of our community, and we also believe in our capacity to create change.
