There is hope.

The impact of trauma goes far beyond a group of "troubled" children. It shapes our families, our schools and our communities.

Our Mission is to educate and support teachers, caregivers, parents, guardians, advocates and other professions who live and work with children affected by all forms of trauma. Learn more about Connected Kids >>
