YELLOW HEART COMMITTEE

About Yellow Heart Committee

Yellow Heart Committee (YHC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization mobilizing to support the holistic mental health of trauma survivors through policy advocacy, education, and community outreach. This is achieved through our pillars of HEART: Healing, Empowerment, Advocacy, Relationships, and Therapy. Yellow Heart Committee aims to create a world where the barriers between people and policy are broken, and survivors of trauma have access to spaces for holistic healing and comprehensive education.

Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

We strive to be an organization that lives into its beliefs around Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI). We welcome and expect our current and future team members to join us on this collective journey.

Project Summary

This program is in partnership with City Church Fairfield. The City Livin’ Center is a faith-based, but not faith required, affordable facility with a minimum of a year stay (12 month) where lives change! We provide hope and help for those struggling with substance abuse, depression, anger, control, past physical and sexual abuse, and other life-controlling issues:*. The only key piece this Church was missing was support for mental health and survivors of trauma and that’s where YHC (Yellow Heart Committee) comes into play.

The program will include a Pre, mid, and post test to evaluate the quality and impact of the program. Community Pulses has three group therapy options (men, women, and co-ed) to cover a variety of topics ranging from PTSD and family trauma to relationships and anxiety. For a select few, we have individual therapy as an option to help support those that may need a more intimate environment.

Key Responsibilities

We believe that through inclusive, digestible, and relatable mental health education, we can empower future generations to take charge of their personal and communal mental health standards. This will help guide us towards a future where mental health is treated with appropriate attention and care, and earnest dialogues are practiced and participated in through good faith.
