Blends Gallery 1163 Main St. Bridgeport, CT 06604 Featured Poets Include Tantra Zawadi, Lynnette Johnson, Brenda’s Child ~ Latoya Writes and Shanna Tanika Melton Music by Buddha LuvJonz of LuvJonz Entertainment The mission of Camp Hope is as follows… “Our goal is to give back to children and teens the childhood’s they have lost. The impact of being a primary or secondary victim of domestic or sexual violence or child abuse is devastating and can have profound long-term consequences. Children exposed to trauma have been deprived of the safety and security that should be a rite of childhood. They are also at a higher risk for residual , social and behavioral impact. Camp HOPE America is a growing national network of camps created to respond to this kind of trauma in a sensitive, therapeutic way. Clinical research shows the Camp HOPE model helps children and teens overcome obstacles in a safe, supportive environment; improves self-esteem; and makes them more emotionally resilient.” Visit www.centerforfamilyjustice.org for more information about Camp Hope and the great work that they do to assist families in our community.
