Poverty is a complex issue. Its solutions come from individuals–like you–who are willing to learn, understand and work together. See Poverty...Be the Difference is designed to inform, inspire, and motivate you to make a difference for children and families from poverty backgrounds. It will provide some tools and activities for educating, communicating, and working more effectively with people of all ages who live in poverty and hopefully inspire you to want to learn and do more!

Trauma Informed Care
February 18, 2020
Trauma is a wound. Typically trauma refers to either a physical injury, such as a broken bone, or an emotional state of profound and prolonged distress in response to an overwhelmingly terrifying or unstable experience. Some trauma, like wounds, heal relatively quickly, some heal slowly, and many influence life going forward, like scars. Scars and trauma do not result in defects or deficiencies; rather they are markers of life experience one has survived.
Traumatic experiences are events that threaten or violate one’s safety, health, and integrity. Traumatic experiences may be directly experienced or witnessed. They may be primarily physical experiences, as with physical assaults and sexual abuse, or primarily emotional experiences, as with verbal abuse. Traumatic experiences may result in the emotional experience of traumatic stress, but not necessarily.
