Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health (LACDMH) MHSA Innovation 2- Developing Trauma Resilient Communities: Community Capacity Building

​Innovation 2 (INN 2) is a four year initiative that centers on building the capacity of communities to identify and support community members at risk of trauma or experiencing trauma by utilizing strategies that embody shared community values, leadership development, and community member empowerment. Participating lead agencies and their community partners have selected one or more of strategies and target populations within their service area as the method for strengthening community capacity for addressing trauma across the lifespan. These strategies include building trauma resilient-families by focusing on children aged 0-5, psycho-education and support for school communities, support networks and coordinated employment for transition age youth (TAY) and older adults who are homeless or at risk for homelessness or recently incarcerated, and intergenerational families who have experienced trauma. With Todd Gilmer PI and our community partner, Harder+Co., HSRC is utilizing a learning focused, developmental evaluation (DE) approach that incorporates both qualitative and quantitative measurement to document the process and journey of partnership and community capacity building, as well as the impact of INN 2 on participants and the community.
