Project Overview

The District of Columbia Office of Victim Services and Justice Grants has partnered with Give an Hour to develop a new initiative: Enhancing the District’s Response to Trauma (EDRT). At Give an Hour we believe that within our communities we have the resources to address many of society’s challenges that result in emotional pain and suffering. By harnessing the skills and generosity of citizens across our nation and around the world, we provide those in need with help and hope.

EDRT will provide free and confidential trauma-specific mental health services to individuals in the District of Columbia and their families who are victims of crime, justice-involved adults and juveniles, and youth at risk of truancy or juvenile delinquency. Additionally, a primary goal of EDRT is to ensure that participating service providers have access to high quality, trauma-specific educational trainings so that as many providers as possible are trained in one or more trauma-specific modalities.
