Trenton-based Shiloh Community Development Corporation has been awarded a Systems for Action (S4A) grant to expand a church-based home visiting program and address inequities in collaboration with Tufts Medical Center.
The FAAITH and HOPE project is a one-year pilot study that will give researchers a better understanding of how to add the HOPE framework to faith ministries and test ways to align medical, social services, and public health systems to promote equity.
In his comments at the Shiloh Baptist Church press conference announcing the S4A partnership and award, Rev. Armstrong noted:
“The earliest start in life is going to set a child on the best trajectory, and if we can give everything that the child and family need at the earliest stages of their lives, we are setting them up for success as opposed to adverse childhood experiences, which we know leads to all kinds of other risk factors. And so we’re not just against abuse. We’re also promoting hope.”
