The Healing Project
Project Babies Advocacy Program
The Healing Project was established in 2021. The founder was born and raised in ‘the projects’ and experienced the lack of resources, over-policing and police brutality, displacement, high unemployment rates, and economic injustice first-hand. Ultimately, The Healing Project is committed to empowering Black and Brown residents within ‘the projects’ by offering a path towards healing through self-advocacy.
Residents who live within Austin’s “project” communities are disenfranchised by deliberate neglect which negatively impacts overall quality of life. The Project Babies program aims to empower residents of Austin's HUD funded housing complexes also known as “the projects” to become self-advocates through sharing information, resources, and support. PBAP participants will “graduate” to become Project Baby Ambassadors, who represent The Healing Project and the property they live on.
