The Englewood and West Englewood (Greater Englewood) communities on the South Side of Chicago experience disparities in health outcomes and low life expectancies. Structural violence and trauma are associated with poor health outcomes. The Adverse Community Experiences and Resilience (ACE/R) framework is a useful tool to engage low-income communities experiencing structural violence, trauma, and community resilience to understand what to target. If unaddressed at the individual level, trauma makes it hard to succeed in school, interferes with work productivity, damages relationships, increases the of violence, and is associated with shorter lifespans.
