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. Collaborative efforts support 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. The Collaborative continues to expand this success by providing trauma-informed training for agencies serving young children and their families, as well as, serving as a resource to the Engage Douglas County coalition.
