Bethany House Services received a $100,000 grant from the Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile Jr./U.S. Bank Foundation.
Bethany House Services provides shelter and services for thousands of homeless families.
The Haile grant will support BHS programs to incorporate trauma-informed care, an approach to engaging people with histories of trauma that recognizes the presence of trauma symptoms and acknowledges the role it has played in their lives.
“We anticipate that integration of the principles of trauma-informed care with the counsel and expertise of community resources in education and health will result in improved outcomes for our families,” said Susan Schiller, Bethany House executive director.
