emPOWER NOLA



We emPOWER school and cultural leaders
to impact childhood trauma in New Orleans.



In New Orleans, 1 in 5 kids have experienced trauma.
These kids are not getting the help that they need.


That's why our team is creating community-based,
trauma-informed spaces for kids by
connecting culture bearers with school health providers.

“The city of New Orleans is like no other. No other city’s community embodies its culture on a daily basis. This project is to preserve our culture; to do that, we must preserve our children.”
