United Way of Douglas County
CCC is proud to partner with United Way of Douglas County, which is providing funding to support our project to build a trauma-informed early childhood community.
Douglas County Early Childhood Trauma Collaborative
CCC is a founding member of the Douglas County Early Childhood Trauma Collaborative (DCECTC). 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 includes leaders of:
USD 497 Early Childhood Program at Kennedy Elementary
Head Start, housed at Plymouth Congregational Church
Hilltop Child Development Center
Positive Bright Start
