A trauma informed center offers staff and policies and protocols that reflect an understanding of the lifecycle of abuse and trauma, as an event and an understanding of that impact over the lifespan of the individual who has experienced trauma.

Creating Social Justice and Equality

To create an environment of social justice where the truth can be told requires every staff person and board member to have a true understanding of domestic violence, its causes, and its holistic impact on everyone in the environment and its social implications.
