Community Violence, Well being & Recovery Project

About this Program

The Community Violence, Well-being & Recovery Project (CVWRP) is a collaboration between Scarborough Centre for Healthy Communities and the City of Toronto’s Community Safety and Wellbeing Unit. This project aims to enhance support for vulnerable Scarborough residents impacted by community violence through a trauma-informed, culturally appropriate lens. Our pilot consists of one-on-one trauma-informed counselling with our Social Worker, while intake/assessment and case management supports are to be done by our Caseworker. Our CVWRP team consists of Caseworker Rachel Hilton and Social Worker Kevin Jagmohan.

What the CVWRP program looks like:

  • Once a referral is made, the caseworker conducts an intake/ assessment and then transfers over to the Social Worker
  • The Social Worker is to provide counselling/ mental health support for 6+ sessions
  • Caseworker to provide case management support to navigate services, supports and system while helping clients transition to longer term mental health supports.

As this work is being done, the goal is to provide mental health support through a trauma informed lens while helping client’s transition to longer term mental health support to address the trauma they have experienced.

Eligibility

  • Residents age 16 and up and living within the Scarborough community
  • Impacted by community violence (witnessed an event, victim of event, family member/ friend of victim, community resident)

As this work is being done, the goal is to provide mental health support through a trauma informed lens while helping client’s transition to longer term mental health support to address the trauma they have experienced.
