Trauma-Informed Classroom

Help me give my students a safe place to heal from their trauma with essential oils, yoga mats, and other calming supplies.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

I primarily serve a community of students that experience a significant amount of trauma. Our social work spaces are safe spaces in the building where students can be themselves in whatever messy, big, and fun ways that may be. We work through a lot of tough issues and celebrate some huge wins.

Our kids love to play pretend, do art projects, and learn more about how to calm down their bodies and brains.

We love facilitating all of these activities.

My Project

Having these materials will help my students work through childhood trauma. We all know that treating trauma effectively and quickly is the best way to help individuals, families, and our communities.

As school-based therapist we will usher kids into space to begin healing, and having these materials we will be able to facilitate age appropriate therapy sessions.

As a community, we need to begin to do the hard work, and we are looking for people who will partner with us in this work.

Students are showing up for school soon, and we are excited to welcome them into our spaces! Please consider donating to our community.
