Fund Details

Douglas County Early Childhood Trauma Collaborative

The vision of the Collaborative is a trauma-informed early childhood community which helps young children, and the adults who care for them, respond to difficult life challenges with positive coping strategies. Our Fund supports four preschool programs, serving over 600 young children, in implementing Trauma Smart, a model which has demonstrated effectiveness in building social and emotional skills critical for school readiness. We are now working to expand this success into other agencies serving young children and their families. The Collaborative is composed of leaders of these programs (USD 497 Early Childhood Program, Community Children’s Center, Head Start, Hilltop Child Development Center and Positive Bright Start) and community volunteers.
