Support & Healing
The core to the Healing initiative is a foundational belief that entrepreneurial initiatives are not enough for anyone and especially for people who live in communities experiencing intergenerational poverty, trauma, and systemic disinvestment. Circles of learning and training will be provided to support individuals to reach their goals for personal success, including mindfulness meditation, trauma-informed trainings, parenting skills, self-care, yoga, and fitness. These healing services will be co-located with workforce development at The Brady Market. At the center of the healing model is a relational investment process called “secure base,” which includes a case manager, a mentor, and access to individual and communal therapeutic services. We are collaborating with It’s About Childhood and Family to provide these ongoing services.
