Our mission is to foster resilient communities that promote healing and well-being through collaboration, education and community engagement. Our vision is a trauma-informed Ottawa.
Trauma Matters Here…
A trauma-informed approach is a framework for addressing the root causes of an issue — the origin.
We are strongly committed to increasing the quality and availability of trauma responsive services.
Through research and collaboration, our goal is to mobilize the community as a partner to build resilience.
We strive towards a Trauma Informed community. Our members are certified and trained in the principles of Trauma Informed Care.
Together we can ensure that children and families in Ottawa have access to quality services rooted in trauma informed care.
