FP YouthOutCry Foundation, Inc.'s (FPYOC) is a 501c3 located in Newark, NJ with a mission to increase opportunities for success by providing healing programs, services, and events for underserved youth and their families through experiences that Entertain, Educate and Empower! For the past thirteen (13) years, we have responded to enumerable cries for help from residents of Newark. FPYOC has established ourselves as a safe place for everyone to heal in a manner that would be impossible without the community respect and trust that we have earned.
The H.U.B.B. Arts & Trauma Center
In 2013, FPYOC launched The H.U.B.B. (Help Us Become Better) Arts & Trauma Center. The HUBB utilizes a three-pronged approach, Entertain, Educate and Empower, to identify and address the impact of violence and victimization in communities. Through arduous cultivation and subsequent implementation of alternative therapeutic engagements, The HUBB provides a robust array of intergenerational programs throughout the five wards of Newark, New Jersey. We utilize cutting-edge technology and expression, through the arts, to help participants heal from complex traumatic experiences. Our approach focuses on the deployment of supportive and comprehensive creative environments across the artistic spectrum. Our center is equipped with state-of-the-art recording and radio/podcast broadcasting studios, a photography and video production studio accompanied with computers; all created to facilitate interactive activities for youth and their families.
The HUBB HELP Trauma Recovery Center
Our proven success in assisting the youth and families of Essex County has led to the expansion of our services, and the creation of The HUBB HELP TRC (Healing and Empowering Life Purpose Trauma Recovery Center). The completion of the center will culminate the opening of the first emotional Trauma Recovery Center on the east coast. The HUBB HELP TRC aims to assist participants in transforming from victims of trauma to triumphant survivors of their traumas. The HUBB meet participants where they are in their healing journey utilizing trauma informed, victim, and art therapy services. Our goal is to assist survivors with trauma who are committed to establishing their individual healing journey, those who are willing and able to fine tune their life's purpose and promote the goal of increasing survivors' access to trauma-informed, evidence-based, culturally responsive and competent effective services.
The center is committed to providing: Education about trauma and its effect on youth and families; to Entertain their spirits and hearts through artistic therapeutic interventions; and Empower their families to heal from trauma and become triumphant over victimization. The HUBB ATC and The HUBB HELP TRC will continue to increase culturally appropriate healing services in Newark, New Jersey as a Mayor appointed "Center of Hope."
