Community Restorative Services & Solutions (CRSS)
We believe just as families and communities can collectively experience trauma, they can also come together connectedly for healing, resilience and restoration. The CRSS focuses on building trauma and resilience-informed families, organizations and communities through education, training and consultation. We utilize Restorative and Trauma Informed Practices on a micrco and macro level.
We follow Substance Abuse and Mental Services Administration's (SAMHSA)
