The Charlestown Coalition’s Trauma Response Team was formed in July 2016 through a grant from the Boston Alliance for Community Health (BACH). The Trauma Response Team initially started as a group of residents who wanted to learn more about trauma, its impact on the community, and how they could best serve residents during traumatic situations.
Over the past several years, the Trauma Response Team has served as an important part of the Charlestown Coalition by supporting the community and connecting people to treatment concerning issues around loss, community violence and substance use disorders. Our Trauma Response Team consists of dedicated and passionate people who are leaders in their community.
This month we want to recognize and appreciate Lori D'Alleva who has been a part of our trauma response team since 2018. Lori is the Director of the Charlestown Adult Education Center and she has been working in the Charlestown community for over 12 years. She is committed to ensuring that residents and young people get the second chance they deserve in life. Lori works tirelessly to support young adults in her program- providing a listening, nonjudgemental ear. Lori is an amazing person and strong advocate for residents in the community, ensuring their voices are heard and their needs are met. She is a great partner and friend to the Charlestown Coalition and because of Lori's ability to work with anyone in the community, we enlisted Lori to be a part of our trauma response team. We want to thank Lori for her ongoing support and dedication.
