The Partnership for Healthy Public Housing Communities (PHPC) is comprised of nonprofits and government agencies working together to address systems change areas that impact the lives of public housing residents. The work is currently centered around trauma informed communities and school and workforce development.

STORY has led the partnership since 2018 and partnered with the Inner Work Center to provide mindfulness training to Hopewell Public Schools educators and administrative staff.  The 10 For 10 video series was created for educators within Hopewell Public Schools to provide training on mindfulness techniques that could be used in the classroom. Executive Director, Kathryn Thompson designed and installed calm spaces in Patrick Copeland Elementary, Hopewell High School and the ML2 program site in Thomas Rolfe Court.   Employees across the partnership also received trauma informed care and cultural awareness training. 
The Hopewell Redevelopment and Housing Authority and Hopewell Police Department made revisions to an existing MOU between the agencies to ensure safer communities for public housing residents.  STORY also assisted the housing authority with the process of becoming a designated Envision Center site as more emphasis was placed on developing workforce programs for public housing residents that would improve chances of achieving self-sufficiency.  The Envision Center is located within the Davisville community and operates out of the community center.  
STORY will continue to invest in systems change work that can improve social determinants of health for public housing youth and their families.
