Building Bridges to North Lawndale (BBNL)

JPA’s high quality mental health services provided by expert JPA clinicians through the award winning Building Bridges to North Lawndale (BBNL) project are designed to help traumatized Chicago children (90% low income and 91% African American) build social-emotional learning skills and improve classroom behavior. Vulnerable children served through six BBNL participating public elementary schools in North Lawndale are experiencing emotional, behavioral or family problems that have potential to result in chronic school problems and delinquency as they grow older.
