The Baltimore City Health Department has awarded the SSW over $132,000 to help build capacity for its Resiliency in Communities after Stress And Trauma Program. Assistant Clinical Professor Kyla Liggett-Creel is the Principal Investigator.
The purpose of the Resiliency in Communities after Stress And Trauma Program is to build the capacity in the community to evaluate community-based programs. Dr. Liggett-Creel will work with community members to design evaluation protocols, collect data, and develop summary reports describing the important work members of the community are doing and the wonderful outcomes they are achieving. The potential impact of this project is to increase evaluation capacity of community grassroots organizations so they can apply for additional grant funding using data collected and analyzed through the Resiliency in Communities After Stress and Trauma Program.
