Does your runaway and homeless youth program want to be trauma-informed but you don't know where to start? The National Center on Family Homelessness has created a toolkit (PDF, 2MB) designed to help programs like yours, with self-assessment questions, a summary of the issues, recommended readings and other relevant resources.

You may also want to explore two of the most common models of trauma-informed care, the Sanctuary Model and Community Connections. Both models contain explanations of trauma and its effects, helpful responses to trauma, implementation guidelines and additional resources.
