Title

To Recognize and Celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the Mount Carmel Crime and Trauma Assistance Program

 

Body

WHEREAS, the Mount Carmel Crime and Trauma Assistance Program (CTAP) was founded in 1979 to facilitate the healing and recovery process for victims, survivors, and co-survivors of crime and traumatic events; and

 

WHEREAS, CTAP provides educational, empowering and therapeutic intervention programs for victims, survivors, and co-survivors, with an emphasis in making treatment that acknowledges cultural variations of a population to properly address the needs of victims; and

 

WHEREAS, CTAP is the only program in Central Ohio that offers free, trauma-focused, best practice therapy using methods such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Empowerment Model, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, two of the most cited effective treatment modalities; and

 

WHEREAS, in 2016 alone, CTAP served 299 patients showing an average of 60% improvement of symptoms for each client served; and

 

WHEREAS, CTAP has made an overwhelmingly positive impact on the community by providing its free services and specialized professional assistance to affected, socially marginalized victims living in poverty that otherwise would not have access to appropriate intensive trauma treatment services; now, therefore

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF COLUMBUS:

 

That this Council does hereby recognize and celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Mount Carmel Crime and Trauma Assistance program on August 17th, 2017.
