ECHO Family Care Partners supports families in crisis, empowering family preservation and strengthening foster, kinship, and adoptive families, while they care for vulnerable children. There are thousands of vulnerable children in our community and many (if not most) have experienced trauma. It impacts brain development, our bodies, belief systems, emotions, and our behaviors. Complex trauma impacts so much that traditional methods of parenting, or teaching, or even just interacting don’t work. But there are specific interventions and approaches, known as trauma-informed care, that can change a child’s life. Education equips families to navigate trauma and its impact, while strengthening them to provide the stability and support needed for healing.
