Spectrum News 1 recently featured the work of the Center for Healing the Hurt, one of the 2022/2023 bi3 Health Equity Fund Grantees.
Since 2010, bi3 has awarded more than $86 million to TriHealth and community-based organizations to fund innovative ideas to transform health. The newly established bi3 Health Equity Fund—a partnership with the United Way of Greater Cincinnati (UWGC) to support Black Empowerment Works—will provide $1 million in funding over three years to address disparities in resources for Black-led organizations to improve health outcomes and build health equity.
Having received a $20,000 grant, the Center for Healing the Hurt is one of nine Black-led organizations in Cincinnati to receive money from bi3 to address poverty and systemic inequality. Funding will provide free, trauma-based therapy for children and teens to help them to address, process and recover from traumatic experiences.
