When & Where
Trauma Informed Care Network
We are a voluntary community group made up of persons from many diverse fields including health care, criminal justice, government, school system, military, foster care, and more. We also value the membership of our peer community, some of which may have experienced trauma and do have first-hand knowledge of how “the system” has worked for them.
