Ujima Family Resilience Program
Building on the principle of “Ujima”, the Family Resilience Program will prevent justice system involvement among Black boys in North Minneapolis by providing the evidence based Strengthening Family Coping Resources (SFCR) curriculum as a means to “use family coping resources as mechanisms for change, strengthen family processes impacted by urban poverty and chronic trauma, and address trauma-specific treatment goals.” The program will be provided in partnership with culturally specific providers from throughout the Twin Cities.
With the support of our dedicated Program Coordinator, the “Ujima Family Resilience Program” provides youth & their families.
