Contra Costa Launches First Trauma Recovery Center for Victims of Violent Crimes

by ECT

Richmond, CA —  The Contra Costa Family Justice Center (“the Center”), a one stop resource Center for people affected by domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking, elder abuse, and child abuse, will launch the new Contra Costa Trauma Recovery Center (CC TRC) starting July 1st, 2021.

Through a grant from California Victim Compensation Board (CalVCB) and in partnership with Familias Unidas, the new TRC will provide trauma-informed mental health counseling, psychiatric evaluation and medication management, and clinical case management to all victims of violent crime of all ages, without barriers and at no cost to recipients. It will fill a severely unmet need for mental health services for uninsured, low-income, and undocumented county residents who lack access to mental health treatment.

The CC TRC will be modeled after the proven University of California San Francisco (UCSF) Trauma Recovery Center. Trauma Recovery Centers provide outreach and assistance to crime victims who typically are unable to access traditional services, including the chronically mentally ill, immigrants/refugees, people with disabilities, members of the LGBTQ community, people of diverse ethnicity or origin, or juvenile survivors. Service will be provided to all survivors of violent crimes, including sexual assault, domestic violence, battery, gun and gang violence, and human trafficking.

The Family Justice Center runs three warm and welcoming one stop service centers in Antioch, Concord, and Richmond, California. Contra Costa residents impacted by violent crimes can access the Contra Costa Trauma Recovery Center at all three Centers.
