Coalition Shares Strategies on Working With Victims of Childhood Trauma The Shofar Coalition is a Baltimore-based program
which focuses on childhood trauma. Shofar’s identified target populations are:
child and adolescent victims of physical, sexual, and/or emotional abuse (both
intra- and extra-familial); children exposed to domestic violence; children of
alcoholic, addicted, or mentally ill parents; and adult survivors of any of
these traumatic experiences in childhood. CHANA, Baltimore’s stellar Jewish DV
program and a key partner, is working with the Shofar Coalition to
collaboratively address the specialized needs of children exposed to DV.
