Their aim is to build the capacity of families and communities to reduce health disparities for underserved youth ages 3-17 impacted by violence. The Center will establish sustainable implementation of culturally-relevant, trauma-responsive, evidence-based interventions for families impacted by violence in Boulder and Broomfield counties through four parent-child programs along the prevention and intervention continuum. One of these programs, Let’s Connect, was Co-Developed at IBS by Dr. Monica Fitzgerald, Dr. Kimberly Shipman, and Dr. Lucianne Hackbert.
