how we help

Our Programs

The Family Center offers a range of evidence or research-based (or informed) programs that help break cycles of trauma in families.  We recognize that creating resilient communities starts in families and families often need a village to support them.  We provide seminars targeting specific needs in shorter time frames, groups that offer more intensive information and skills for families (groups in community partner sites also include the option for children), two-generational coaching in homes, safety zones, or facilities, and training for nonprofits, businesses, and systems like courts or jails to advance knowledge and integrate system changes related to ACEs and Trauma Informed Principles.

All groups and seminars remain virtual (online). We’ll continue to assess safety factors while also working with community partners to get back to in-person sessions as soon as possible.
