In Fall 2019, the City of Boston launched a neighborhood trauma team in Grove Hall to provide immediate and long-term help to residents affected by violence. The Boston Public Health Commission is partnering with Harvard Street NHC and Project RIGHT to provide greater community outreach and support to Grove Hall residents. Project RIGHT is a grassroots neighborhood organization that mobilizes and coordinates resident and youth involvement in neighborhood stabilization, economic development and community building efforts in the Grove Hall area of North Dorchester and Roxbury. Harvard Street and these partners will provide residents with immediate crisis response services after a violent incident as well as ongoing services, including referrals to behavioral health services and neighborhood outreach and education. Speaking on the issue, Harvard Street President & CEO Stan McLaren was quoted in The Boston Globe: “We know that gun violence disproportionately damages communities of color, and research proves that witnesses to gun violence are at serious risk for trauma, depression, anxiety and other devastating health problems.”
