Kathy Young-Hood (R.I.P), Emeritus
When Kathy’s son was shot and killed in 2004, she didn’t think she could go on. She considered suicide – regularly. But the help she received at San Francisco’s Trauma Recovery Center (which streamlines various victim services and focuses on the healing needed to rebound from traumatic crimes) gave her the strength and a purpose to go on. Kathy was an eloquent speaker – in the media and at the Center – about the benefits of the Trauma Recovery Center model and other victim needs.
