People Helping People

SBRN is a grassroots volunteer organization dedicated to supporting fellow community members’ through traumatic experiences. Volunteers are trained in Psychological First-Aid (PFA) to assist a community in finding their own resilience to recover. We do not offer therapy, but rather organic support through person-to-person interactions.

How Else Do We Establish Resilience?

 SBRN was formed by bringing together a full community to address trauma and innovate positive solutions with all those affected by crisis in order to create long-term positive changes. We continue to convene collaboratives any time there is a community issue that causes mass-panic or trauma in order to promote the creation of positive resiliency-based approaches that will help those in need.

Immigration Advocacy Collaborative (I.A.C.)


  Join our current convening of community need. As our local Majority-Minority migrant residents face fears of mass-deportations, we convene to establish resiliency and safety within the community in order for our children to thrive within it.  We meet on the First, Third, Fourth, and Fifth Wednesday of every week in Trinity Church (1500 State St) at 5:30 p.m. 

All are welcome to attend. 


Now, our technique of PFA continues to create stabilization when individuals are in crisis. PFA is designed to reduce initial distress caused by traumatic events as it fosters long-term adaptive coping functions. It is intended for use with children, adolescents, parents/caretakers, families, and communities exposed to disaster, traumatic events, or terrorism. Psychological First Aid can also be provided to first responders and other disaster relief workers.
