Fromm Reed has been working since about 2004 on the challenge of how to help people and communities heal from Adverse Childhood Experiences.

Since Resilient Belmont Cragin formed in January 2018, it has worked with school, health, mental health, police and business leaders in the community to site a health clinic open to the entire community at Steinmetz High School, train police to not re-traumatize residents and mentor at-risk youth of high school age.LXF Folding Table Wall Table Folding Table Desk Computer Desk Learning Table Home Pink (Size Optional) (Size 8040cm) During Sen.
