(Flint, Mich.) – ReCAST is seeking proposals from agencies/programs that support the mission of ReCAST, and expand the use of trauma-informed approaches throughout the greater Flint community.
Up to five grants for a maximum amount of $30,000 each will be awarded to agencies & programs that support the mission of ReCAST, and expand the use of trauma-informed approaches throughout the greater Flint community.
“ReCAST is dedicated to strengthening the local programs and partnerships that support at-risk youth and families in developing resilience” says Dr. Vicki Johnson-Lawrence, ReCAST program director. “The use of trauma informed approaches strengthens existing programs by creating a new normal focused on wellness and resliency.”
The Flint Resiliency in Communities after Stress and Trauma Program (ReCAST) is designed to promote resilience in the Flint community by assisting high risk youth and families, mitigating the impact of trauma, reducing behavioral health disparities and increasing the opportunities and training for Flint youth through strong community engagement strategies.
The target population addressed by this project are high risk youth and their families impacted by the Flint Water Emergency (FWE). Poverty, exposure to violence and trauma, decreased educational and employment opportunities all contribute to the risks facing youth and their families.
