In May 2019, the Henry Beauchamp Community Center (HBCC) received a $50,000 grant from the Washington Healthcare Authority to enhance its Trauma-Informed Approach to service delivery. HBCC will expand its partnerships with Yakima Neighborhood Health, United Way of Central Washington, Washington State University to develop and implement a comprehensive plan intended to train and educate community leaders, staff, stakeholders and clients on methods to identify and address adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and other mental and behavioral health challenges.
The first FREE Trauma-Informed Approach Conference for professionals was on August 1 and August 2, 2019, at the Henry Beauchamp Community Center.
Contact Adrianne Garner, HBCC Director for more information about upcoming events and activities.
The Henry Beauchamp Community Center, (formerly the Southeast Yakima Community Center), was originally established in 1966 when a group of community volunteers completed a survey of area problems and needs. These same people helped to organize a neighborhood committee to begin working to solve the economic, educational, and social problems of the area. The group was later formalized into the nonprofit self-help corporation. The Henry Beauchamp Community Center's mission is to provide a variety of services aimed at fostering self-sufficiency and dignity for children, youth and families, and affirming diversity in culture and way of life for residents of southeast Yakima.
