Child Care Bridge Program with Trauma-Informed Training

More foster and relative homes are needed across the country. One barrier is child care access. A new bill seeks to solve this problem by providing a child care bridge program with a trauma informed training component.

What encouraging news to know that our legislators are considering the role of trauma in the lives of foster children and supporting caregivers. ACEs science advocates can make a big difference by weighing in on the bill and its implementation (if passed) to ensure there is meaningful training and support around trauma. Too often, implementing organizations can claim to be "trauma informed" or provide "trauma informed training", but we need to make sure the training and supports around understanding ACEs and trauma are effective in both quality and quantity to meet the needs of caregivers, and therefore children. We can do this by asking questions of legislators and state agencies tasked with implementation,  sharing proven resources, and engaging foster parents, other caregivers, and childcare workers in a conversation about what is needed, and what they think works.
