HCC is a Trauma-Informed Organization.
HCC – from its executive members to social service providers – is a Trauma-Informed Agency. We look at the individual’s entire community/system when it comes to intervention and aim to provide a unique strength to serving survivors of trauma. Specifically, we are interested in community engagement and outreach to reduce the stigma of counseling, as well as providing a platform for continuous support in order to encourage long-term support and sustainability, with the goal and intent of keeping families stronger, for longer periods of time.
