Culturally-Sensitive and Trauma-Informed Agency
Our approach to our work is culturally sensitive and trauma-informed.
We recognize that trauma is any event, action, or process that leads to a significant and negative impact on a person. We also recognize that trauma is pervasive and ongoing.
TMWF’s approach to trauma-informed care recognizes the importance of culture in an individual’s life — including the importance of spirituality, language, and other customs and traditions. We believe that we cannot be mindful of the healing process without heading to an individual’s culture. Healing is a process, and we are here to empower, assist, and guide individuals through healing journeys.
