Trauma, community resilience are focus of Flint grants to local nonprofits

“What ReCAST does is join forces with community organizations, because it’s really important that we invest in Flint, specifically organizations that are meeting the needs of children and families with a focus on those needs being met through a trauma-informed lens,” said Lottie Ferguson, the chair of ReCAST’s community advisory board and the chief resilience officer for the city.

The city of Flint awarded grants to 11 community partners to help further the mission of Flint ReCAST (Resiliency in Communities after Stress and Trauma), a program designed to promote resilience in the community by supporting families and mitigating the impact of trauma.
