In Dallas, there are easily hundreds of nonprofit organizations providing for the basic needs or families in crisis, whether they are experiencing it related to domestic violence, food insecurity, unexpected major health issue, or financial crisis.
At the same time, there also exists a gap in basic mental health support and access for the same population. With trauma as a barrier to so many children and families struggling to survive, much less thrive, there is an opportunity to provide a new approach without replicating current services, nor incurring the tremendous start-up costs of a new program. Heart House’s Calm Ambassadors Training & Consultancy, armed with more than 18 years of experience working with trauma-sensitive refugee children in Vickery Meadow, will provide the framework, curricula and on-the-ground support to partners who seek to employ our unique, culturally-relevant approach to their current work with families in crisis. Through the Calm Ambassador Training project, Heart House has the opportunity to impact far more children in the Dallas area and beyond. By going deep with our training and consultancy partners and customizing our training to the specific needs of our partners who have been hand-selected for greatest potential, we will help them reach greater impact based on their respective definitions.Visit Heart House online!
