Brenda + Eddie. They were always together and helped to create Bounce Back Generation. Brenda passed away in 2020. Eddie shares their difficult beginnings and triumphs over tremendous adversity.
Grief is inevitable in life and can be one of the most difficult experiences to face. When we tell our stories we are more likely to recognize our own resilience, through grief, loss, and other forms of hardship. Storytelling also helps others to share and bounce back from theirs’. Thank you, Eddie for sharing your story with us.
This video is in loving memory of Brenda Henry Kittrell. We love and miss you. Rest in peace.
⚡️ Who Are We? ⚡️
Bounce Back Generation’s mission is to help individuals, families, organizations and systems bounce back from toxic stress and trauma by building and sharing practical tools for resilience.
In 2011, we began our work as the Healthy Generations Project in a public housing community in San Francisco. A grandmother told us “we are all suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder” because of the constant presence of violent crime, drug use, poverty, institutional racism, and domestic dysfunction. That moment set us on a journey to understand how stress and trauma were impacting the community, and inspired us to work together to build resilience.
