Serving Unhoused People & Sustaining Our Natural Areas

Event Background: 
There is a demonstrable need to cultivate sensitivity and connect with other resource providers to develop flexible and adaptive approaches that support both unhoused people and natural areas. Trauma Informed Care is an established approach attracting nationwide attention for its ability to support organizations that are interfacing with populations who have experienced trauma that we will explore. Please join us on October 10, from 9AM- 2:30PM, for a gathering of natural resource and social service partners to learn more about Trauma Informed Care and why it matters to our work. Our event aims to cultivate compassion, understanding, and open new communications channels among people in the natural resource sector and those who are unhoused or are advocates for unhoused people; and develop the necessary relationships and find resources to support both unhoused people and natural resources.
