Mom on a mission to help survivors of violence

WCPO - Cincinnati Scripps

Following a special Cincinnati City Council meeting intended to address the recent summer spike in gun-related homicides and violent crime, some Cincinnati residents have begun to work on a new way to address violence in the community. The trauma therapy counseling at Seven Hills Neighborhood Houses helps local survivors of violence and their families overcome the trauma they've endured. The center is one of only eight like it in the entire state of Ohio. Shakyra Diaz helped establish the eight centers, with a program modeled after one in California.
