Examples of Impact Stories:
Mrs. Levin, 89, is a survivor of domestic violence who rarely left her home. We enrolled her in our music therapy group, arranged for accessible transportation to group meetings, and installed a ramp by her front door so that she can comfortably move her walker in and out of her home. After a few months in the music therapy program, Mrs. Levin told her case manager that she is happier and feels connected to her community for the first time in a decade.
Sam spent the last 15 years as a social worker at a senior center, but had no specialized training in Holocaust Survivor care. After enrolling in our training workshop on person-centered, trauma-informed care, Max has decided to train his coworkers on the PCTI approach. As a result of our workshop, this senior center now caters services specifically toward the Holocaust survivors in their community, offers Russian-language newspapers and cultural performances, and involves Holocaust survivors in the planning of new programs.
