Introduction to Trauma Informed Care for Foreclosure Prevention Advocates-Part 1

Michelle Michelle May 12, 2022

Empire Justice Center is excited to announce our Building Equity Initiative, a new component of our Homeowner Protection Program (HOPP).  Advocates will learn to recognize barriers that have historically prevented many New Yorkers from attaining and maintaining homeownership and provide tools to ensure foreclosure prevention services are inclusive and equitable.


Join Empire Justice Center and Coordinated Care Services, Inc. for a virtual webinar focused on providing HOPP advocates a foundational understanding of trauma informed care and building capacity to deliver foreclosure prevention services in a trauma-responsive way. In Session 1, attendees will gain a shared understanding of how stress, toxic stress, and trauma affect the physiology and behavior of both advocates and clients and impact how we navigate all the systems in which we live and work. A common vocabulary will be established, and the principles of trauma informed care will be highlighted as areas of action for adopting trauma-responsive approaches to service delivery.  This presentation was recorded 5/12/2022.
