Focus on the Family
This is a Trauma Informed Care program hosted by TCU, using strategies
developed by Karyn Purvis. She was a leading expert in this field until
she passed away last year. The training is webinar based and typically
costs $250 to register. However, Focus on the Family is a sponsor so they
provide the webinar free of charge for anyone in our community. This is
great for anyone that works with children who have experience trauma.
Registration for the Focus on the Family viewing is NOT required.
Our meetings are open to organizations
and individuals who are interested in
stopping Modern Day Slavery, especially
in our community. We are a 501 C 3 organization as recognized by the IRS.
