Here at the Mission, we are always looking towards best practices in the ways that we serve our guests. Trauma-Informed Care is one of the ways that we do that. Through this approach, our case managers and staff work to engage with our clients by recognizing and responding to the effects of all types of trauma that they’ve experienced.
Every family that lives at the Mission has experienced trauma in some way. For some, it may have been a single event, such as losing a family member. For others, it may have been a series of traumatic experiences throughout their lives, from abuse and neglect to sudden or unexpected life changes. As we work with each family, it is important that we understand these experiences and how they have impacted their families story.
By understanding where our guests have come from, we can help change the trajectory of their path. We can provide them with resources and skills to help launch them towards a brighter future.
