Building a
Trauma-Responsive
Community

Connected Kids is a non-profit organization founded by Dr. Barbara Sorrels in 2016. 

Its mission is to build a trauma-responsive community by focusing on educators, parents and advocates who live and work with children in hard places.

Connected Kids believes that through authentic relationships, people can change, and children can heal.

 

To demonstrate this belief, Connected Kids is focusing on educators in 2019 by offering a Trauma-Responsive Fellowship for pre-school and elementary-level teacher teams and their principals. The year-long training program will focus on best practices and make the connection from the theoretical to practical application in over-taxed and challenging classrooms.
