Care Coordination/Community Navigation

Horton-Keller Center for Traumatic Healing
The Horton-Keller Center for Traumatic Healing is a community-based approach to addressing the epidemic of PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) in urban neighborhoods.
Healing extends beyond the physical – it is an integration of mind, body, and spirit.
Purpose Point Community Health, The Village Church at 2800 and the YMCA recognize the need for safe places for people to share their stories of trauma, healing, hope, and recovery. “Can We Talk” is the centerpiece of the center. It is a time where folks can come together and share.
