Hi/ I am writing a report on panhandling in our community and want to inform the readers about trauma informed communities and work that can be done to assist populations at risk... is there a concise summary I can reference or pull from to provide an educational context about why many people may struggle and what being a trauma informed community entails? Thanks for anything you can send my way....

ACEs Science 101 has a lot of information about why people struggle. As far as what being a trauma-informed community entails, you can check out Growing Resilient Communities 2.0, as well as the Community Resilience Initiative site of Walla Walla, WA. There are many others, and you can find them in the Communities section of this network.
