Short Story

The hood healing initiative was born out of partnership between Kovu Healing, LLC and Therapist Tiff LLC. Both April and Tiffany are licensed marriage and family therapist who were born and raised in the Rondo neighborhood in St. Paul- or how we affectionately refer to it as the “ hood” . Growing up in this neighborhood resulted in being exposed to traumatic images and experiences but it also afforded us the opportunity to be nurtured, supported and encouraged by the families of the hood, community centers, enrichment programs as well as community and spiritual leaders.

The hood healing initiative was born out of partnership between Kovu Healing, LLC and Therapist Tiff LLC. Both April and Tiffany are licensed marriage and family therapist who were born and raised in the Rondo neighborhood in St. Paul- or how we affectionately refer to it as the “ hood” . Growing up in this neighborhood resulted in being exposed to traumatic images and experiences but it also afforded us the opportunity to be nurtured, supported and encouraged by the families of the hood, community centers, enrichment programs as well as community and spiritual leaders.

With the widespread civil unrest in our city and “hood “ after the murder of George Floyd we recognize now more than ever a need for healing and support for black families in our community. Our goal is to provide free brief ( 10 sessions) individual and family therapy services to black youth and families from the twin cities through donations, community partners and transplant support (those from the Twin Cities living else where). The amount of funding we are able to secure determines the number of youth and families we can provide services to. Therapy services will be provided by licensed mental health professionals who are Black or people of color who have committed to providing 10 sessions to each individual/ family that is assigned to them. Our hope is that through this initiative we will help to dispel the myths and stigma in the black community about therapy while also helping our community heal and grow.

Though April and Tiffany have both set down roots in other parts of the country they are committed to supporting, uplifting and healing the hood that made them! April and Tiffany affectionately refer to themselves as transplants as they reside in Washington, DC and Philadelphia, PA respectfully. They invite others who are from the neighborhood and have transplanted themselves in other areas to donate to this cause as this is a great opportunity to give back to your hood!
