Trauma Informed System of Care:

A trauma-informed approach to service delivery emphasizes physical and emotional safety, choice, empowerment, and trustworthiness for customers.  The impact of trauma is broad and touches many life domains.  Participation is mandatory for activities required for Summit Pointe to become a “Trauma Informed System of Care.”
