Meet our inaugural class of CHW-VPP graduates!
The Sokoto House, located at 1219 Dawson Street in Wilmington, NC has been a host to IATSE Local 417 during our union organizing efforts and our continuous workforce training and development over the 2021-2022 calendar cycles. With the help of Vance Williams and the Sokoto House community activation team, we, the members of IATSE Local 417 have found safe harbor and devoted ourselves in alliance with the missions of The Sokoto House.
Vance and The Sokoto House came highly recommended through my Events Coordinator, and since we've begun a partnership with them, I cannot recommend their services highly enough.
Sokoto House is the headquarters of the Cape Fear's Comprehensive CommUNITY Violence Prevention Strategy (CCCVPS), an initiative principally coordinated by Quality Life Blueprint, Advance Youth Outreach and Lily Nicole Nichelle.
CCCVPS is an initiative and implementation plan based on successful, evidence-based curricula to benefit the community as a priority, as well as address New Hanover County's acknowledgement of racism as a public health crisis and provide a solution to answer the City of Wilmington's call to action through the Rise Together Initiative.
