JRI programs help Fall River, New Bedford trauma survivors recover


Children and teenagers on the SouthCoast are getting the emotional support they need after facing traumatic events through weight lifting, yoga and community outreach.

The Children’s Advocacy Center of Bristol County in Fall River and the Center for Trauma and Embodiment at the Justice Resource Institute (JRI) offer services and opportunities to connect for youth survivors of abuse and trauma and their families. Both programs offer various programs to best suit each survivor’s needs.

The CAC is just one of nearly 100 programs that the JRI offers. As the CAC of Bristol County, operating out of Fall River, it serves as emergency response center for child sexual abuse.

The Center for Trauma and Embodiment is dedicated to researching, developing and training providers to help trauma survivors safely “reconnect to their body so that they may engage more fully with their life.”
