Poverty / Trauma Informed

Poverty and Trauma-Informed Education

The brain research is clear. Growing up in poverty or experiencing trauma will significantly affect a child’s behavior and academic performance, impacting their mindset for change and success.

A systemic approach for change involves a broad understanding of the myths and realities of poverty and trauma. This approach must include students, families, and community members in a long term solution.

We’re committed to finding ways to be part of that solution.
