Our work in the Shelby County community benefits thousands of families, children, and community members.
Shelby County is invested in informing the community about the long-term impact of children'sexposure to violence.
When children are exposed to violence, there are consequences ranging from acting out in school, in their homes and communities to drops in academic performance and possibly committing the acts to which they’ve been exposed. Our goal is to educate parents, persons who interact with and impact children and the community on the signs of trauma as a result of exposure to violence and connect them with resources to take action.
