In our Winter 2017 edition of "Family Matters" you'll read about Tulare County's new Domestic Violence High Risk team, a multi-disciplinary approach to preventing domestic violence homicides. There are also client Stories of Hope and a recap of our fall fundraising efforts. Thanks for reading!
"The High Risk Team Model is an evidence-based practice that we believe will save lives. If we can predict the cases that could become lethal, we can prevent them, and that's what this team will work together to do."
-- Caity Meader, Executive Director
Being exposed to trauma can change the way our brains function. Family Services has been refining its practices to become trauma-informed. That means we do our best to take these brain changes into account when we work with people, creating an environment that promotes physical and emotional safety, reduces the risk of re-traumatization, and creates pathways for healing.
