The Concrete Method

The Concrete Method is a person-centered approach which equips individuals with the tools needed for healing, development, and advocacy. Our stories and lived experiences inform our organizing efforts to Connect, Correct, and Create pathways to services.


We help individuals truly understand themselves and their own experiences with violence and trauma, while contextualizing it within an education of history and the systems that we live with.
