The Anthony Fund
This initiative targets young inner city men who suffer from head injuries. It is well documented that 71% of traumatic brain injuries (TBI) in young men have soared from 150,000 to 250,000 in a short period. The roots of these injuries arise from sports, war injuries and in the inner cities, violent crimes, rough play and physical discipline.
Although TBI symptoms may appear mild at the onset, this type of injury can cause lifelong impairment that affects memory, behavior, learning and emotions. Unattended, these issues can lead to uncontrolled violent acts in later life. American Journal of Psychiatry, September 1997
Unity will continue to find innovative ways and resources to address these problems using health care professionals, the wisdom of research and educating the community to reverse the rising tide of these injuries: classes for parents, enlightening clergy and church congregations, training community leaders, acting as a liaison for health care and raising funds to provide the tools to avert further damage to the young men of these communities. Our intent is to:
- advocate for laws assisting victims
- educate families, organizations and community leaders about TBI
- provide access to health services for victims and families
- provide scholarships for victims, desiring higher education in the study of TBI and health care
