2019 - 2020 Collaborative Learning Academy Cohort
A cross-sector network of agencies and care providers came together to learn about the NEAR sciences, consider trauma sensitive care in their own agencies, and collaboratively enhance the way people are cared for, treated, and served in our community.
“We are in the process of developing more trauma informed
support at our agency. I will continue to remind my staff to not
assume they know why people make the choices they do.
I will take more time with clients to understand their situation
and how I can help them.”
