Trauma-Informed Care

You can not lead a child to a place of healing if you do not know the way yourself.

– Dr. Karyn Purvis


Science and research reveal the impact of early trauma and toxic stress on brain development, long-term health and the degree to which children may struggle in many areas of life. Children living in poverty or unstable family situations are particularly at risk for the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) that may lead to generational patterns which can be difficult to overcome. But there is hope! Trauma-informed care is an important part of holistic discipleship and can inform ministries that help prevent ACEs, and lead to more effective connection and increased resiliency in those who have experienced ACEs.​

Our volunteers and staff felt valued and empowered by being exposed to this training!

The training helped us understand trauma and how there is always something behind the behaviors we might be seeing. Our kids ministry volunteers took away tangible, applicable strategies to be implemented in our ministry. There was also quite a bit of discussion around how to interact with all kids in a safe and positive manner. Overall, everyone sensed the value of this training.
