A collaboration with Global Trauma Research (GTR) was formed to create the Trauma Center at HCC, providing general counseling services, for people suffering from psychological trauma.
The objective of the center is to provide culturally competent trauma informed services (research, counseling, support and education) to underserved minority populations in New York City. Services are available in English, Haitian-Creole, and Spanish.

We are committed to working with community leaders, especially those in the Caribbean population, including: pastors, priests, rabbis, medical providers, social service workers,
