Rush Hospital

Pandemic isolation affected communities of color especially hard. The Community Builders worked with Chicago's Rush University and Illinois Institute of Technology to figure out how TCB investments could best support these communities during this very difficult time.

Providing Support for Coping with Pandemic-Related Traumas

During these sessions, older residents shared their trauma-based experiences, while teens expressed their need for stress relief, trauma-informed care, and community support. As a result, TCB is making new investments in promoting mental health for our residents. Recent work includes teen-grad student mentorship initiatives and the creation of teen-designated common areas in our buildings.
