Building Trauma-Informed Organizations and Communities
We work with organizations individually and together as a learning community to develop and cultivate a core set of resilience building blocks. Organizations receive training, consultation and implementation support to become trauma-resilient and trauma-responsive organizations. In addition partner organizations become part of a community of practice focusing on social learning and collective impact.
Creating Trauma Resilient Organizations and Communities through CTRC includes a suite of services including:
TRC Engagement Training
TRC Embedding Workshop
TRC Community of Practice

Research & Evaluation
The Center for Trauma Resilient Communities has a mission focused on developing and translating trauma-informed, equity-centered evidence-based practices for the community to address inequity, advance social justice priorities, and support the needs of many vulnerable populations.
The Center provides program evaluation support for community partners who are engaging in organizational and/or community change as part of their trauma-resilient work with the Center. Evaluation activities are based on the TRC Model building blocks of change and are grounded in community-based participatory action research (CBPAR) principles.
Evaluation services offered by the Center include the following activities:
Organizational Assessment Survey (OAS)
Implementation Process Survey
Interviews and Focus Groups
The CTRC supports organizations in administering these user-friendly evaluation tools to help staff understand the progress they are making toward becoming a trauma-resilient organization.
