Sometimes we or our loved ones experience trauma. We know that rebuilding and restoring balance after that trauma is a difficult process and Phyllis Wheatley Community Center is here to help. Our restorative programs meet people where they are at on their journey to restoration. Each of our restorative programs are open to the public and are available through various referrals.
The Helping Our People Evolve (HOPE) Youth program is a trauma informed youth diversion program in partnership with Hennepin County designed to give children positive, life-affirming alternatives to some of the choices they make, often resulting in complications in juvenile justice system. Youth meet weekly and engage in group intervention activities based on positive enforcement.
Our referrals come directly to us from Headway Emotional Health Services.
