The Bronzeville Dream Center is dedicated to serving Chicago with counseling and other social services aimed at minimizing negative factors that cause violence and increasing protective influences that yield positive outcomes.  Its unique model will utilize faith leaders as post-trauma counselors and community surveys as the basis for services that directly correspond to the unique needs of constituents.  Its end-to-end approach offers a replicable, evidenced-based template for risk assessment and program evaluation.  The inspiration came from a trip to Israel that Pastor Harris took when he visited a place called NATAL in December 2012.  Pastor Harris has already solidified partnerships with Northwestern Medicine, University of Chicago Medicine and the United Way.
