Victims of Violence: The Antifragility Initiative at University Hospitals Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital
Many children in the U.S., especially black and brown children living in low-income neighborhoods, experience tragically high levels of community violence. In June 2019, UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital launched the Antifragility Initiative (AI), a holistic, person-centered pediatric Hospital-based Violence Intervention Program serving youths and families in the greater Cleveland area. The program equips and empowers children, adolescents and affected families with healing, restoration and growth following incidents of gun violence and other forms of assault. The AI is designed to address community violence from a public health perspective, recognizing that violence can be prevented with positive social support, mentorship and the development of coping skills.
