Catholic Charities, Inc.

Organizational Affiliate - Mississippi
Funding Period:

Catholic Charities, Inc. and a constellation of Mississippi State government and nonprofit organizations joined the NCTSN to serve a wide range of urban, rural, and geographically isolated child trauma survivors. The first funding period was dedicated to providing evidence-based trauma training to Catholic Charities clinicians in home-based, residential, therapeutic foster care, unaccompanied refugee minor, and outpatient (Solomon) centers, and to providing cutting edge information to the community at large. 

Based on the lessons learned through participation in a trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT) learning collaborative in its first funding period, TRY implemented a Gulf Coast TF-CBT learning collaborative to build capacity in agencies to treat children and families affected by trauma after the region’s devastation from Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Catholic Charities went on to develop a statewide trauma-informed system of care to meet the needs of children and families throughout Mississippi. Evidence-based practices were disseminated to public mental health clinicians via the Learning Collaborative model, with an emphasis on systems serving those least likely to have access to quality mental health care. Catholic Charities collaborated with NCTSN experts to provide TF-CBT learning collaboratives and Structured Psychotherapy for Adolescents Responding to Chronic Stress (SPARCS) learning collaboratives, as well as participating in training on the treatment of physically abused children. Currently, Catholic Charities clinicians serve as trauma experts in Mississippi and continue providing direct services to adults and children affected by trauma.

Community Treatment and Services Centers - Category III - Pennsylvania
Funding Period:

CenClear Child Services, Inc. (dba CenClear) was established in 1980 as a non-profit corporation. Head Start is the original program and the program on which CenClear's comprehensive service delivery system is modeled. Through the provision of Head Start Services, it was soon realized that there were other issues that the Head Start program alone could not address. Early on it was discovered that accessible mental health services for children, particularly under the age of five, were limited or nonexistent. As a result of this CenClear submitted an application and was awarded the contract to provide Family-Based Mental Health (FBMH) Services. Since then, CenClear has continued to expand to meet the needs of the communities we serve and now provides an arrays of mental health and drug and alcohol services. Over this time, we have recognized the importance and need to be trauma informed and to provide evidence-based trauma interventions. As an agency, we have begun the process of Sanctuary certification. We have had staff trained as Mental Health First Aid Trainers (youth and adult) and regularly offer in house and out-of-house trainings. In addition, we have increased training for staff to be certified in various EBPs, partnered with the county to develop a Child Advocacy Center (CAC), and have two mental health clinics and a drug and alcohol clinic certified as Trauma Informed Care Centers through BHARP. The SAMSHA Healing After Trauma (H.A.T.) grant is a further extension of CenClear's vision to meet the needs of the communities we serve and promote healing and recovery through the use of evidence based practices (EBPs), increased accessibility and service capacity for children and youth who have experienced trauma.
