What is CTRC?

Mission & vision

We support individuals and groups
to embed and embody the science of trauma resilience within their communities.

We envision communities that are trauma-responsive, resilient, and healing-centered.

We heal together.

The Center for Trauma Resilient Communities (CTRC) creates healing ecosystems grounded in science, learned in collaboration, and measured by outcomes. CTRC supports individuals, organizations, and communities as they recognize the often unspoken long-term wounds of adversity and trauma.

As a trusted partner specializing in trauma-informed care, we work alongside people as they discover their personal power of resilience that can lead to renewed wellness, energy, purpose, and hope. Whether arising from childhood, a critical event, organizational chronic stress, or societal injustices such as racism and oppression, CTRC understands the universal impact of adversity.

We face what is, and work passionately to create what should be.

Created by and in partnership with Crossnore Communities for Children—nationally renowned for its trauma-informed work in the service of children and families—CTRC helps small and large groups achieve healthier internal cultures as they become more honest, safe, and open to all voices. In this way, CTRC and Crossnore are helping build healthier families and communities for all.

Our Work

how we do it

Hear from our co-founder Beatriz Vides about what’s next after training including how we embed these principles into an organization. As we move from theory to action, it’s important to develop structures that help carry out the theory.

Our Services

culture change

Co-founder David McCorkle describes the key components of trauma and how we can react when we see that trauma in action. Culture change is important because it is what heals us and so everyone in an organization needs to be on board with what we do and why.
