Trauma-Informed Networks in Virginia

Cross-sector collaboration for a resilient Commonwealth

Throughout Virginia, there are more than 19 communities coming together across disciplines around trauma-informed care. Most often in Virginia these groups form as trauma-informed community networks (TICNs). Some of these are well established with regular meetings and leadership structures. Others are just beginning the conversations. In each of these communities, these networks share common characteristics: spreading awareness; conducting training; supporting and implementing new practices in schools, courts, and community services and much more. These TICNs help to connect practice across disciplines and help to identify gaps and how policies can be implemented. Family & Children’s Trust Fund is committed to supporting a trauma-informed Virginia through system wide trauma-informed network grants and technical assistance.
