Community Partnerships

Boys Overcoming Stigma and Shame (BOSS)

JJPI received a two-year grant from the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency (PCCD) to create a program that will serve as an additional support for male child and adolescent survivors of childhood sexual abuse. BOSS includes the development of and distribution of gender-specific materials aimed at male-identifying survivors of CSA; targeted community outreach aimed at providing child sexual abuse prevention education; and the implementation of art, music, and movement psychoeducation groups for participants receiving TF-CBT therapy services at any provider within the city of Philadelphia. BOSS draws on the expertise of local artists and musicians, who run creative groups and serve as unofficial mentors and role models.

Delaware HIV Consortium

JJPI is partnering with the Delaware HIV Consortium, headquartered in Wilmington, Delaware, to provide individual and group psychotherapy one day per week to Delawareans living with HIV. The Delaware HIV Consortium's mission is to provide leadership to eliminate HIV in Delaware by supporting and providing optimal HIV care and prevention services. They provide an array of services to further this mission, including case management, housing support and assistance, and HIV counseling and testing. JJPI's behavioral health support is available to participants who also receive case management support from the organization. This partnership has been made possible by the support of an anonymous donor.

PHMC Health Center Network

JJPI is embedding our clinicians in Public Health Management Corporation's six Federally Qualified Health Centers in order to provide trauma-informed psychotherapy for individuals with substance use concerns and significant symptoms of trauma. Funding for this project comes from a five-year grant from the United States Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and its Promoting Integration of Primary and Behavioral Health Care (PIPBHC) Cooperative Agreements. Our partnership is one of four statewide chosen by SAMHSA to address disparities in behavioral health treatment through the development of integrated, comprehensive care models.

JJPI is partnering with Interim House West (IHW) to provide trauma screening/assessments of IHW residents, their children, and additional family members. IHW is an affiliate of PHMC and is a long-term residential substance abuse treatment program for women and their children in the Parkside neighborhood of West Philadelphia. IHW’s program philosophy emphasizes empowerment and self-sufficiency, while also encouraging peer support. This project is funded for five years by the United States Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) as part of its services grant program for residential treatment for pregnant and postpartum women.
