C.O.P.E Family Support Center
Executive Director
Provide Counseling Options and Parent Education
C.O.P.E. is responsive to the specific needs of a diversity of families represented in Contra Costa County. C.O.P.E. leadership and staff members have received training to reduce health disparities and improve outcomes among the county’s diverse racial, ethnic, cultural, linguistic and sexual minority populations. Integral to C.O.P.E.’s success with a diversity of families is our staff awareness of one’s own unique cultural worldview, an understanding and respectful attitude towards cultural differences, knowledge of different cultural practices and worldviews, and cross-cultural skills development. C.O.P.E. also strives to engage others in a humble way by suspending judgment and accepting people, groups, etc. as they are and where they are and do not impose their own personal values upon others. All services provided by C.O.P.E. follow culturally competent best practices which embrace, and foster diversity based on race, ethnicity, cultural identify, gender identity, sexual orientation, religious or spiritual beliefs, or the ability to pay for services. C.O.P.E. will provide specific services tailored to the needs of foster families, fathers, and parents who are co-parenting and those involved in CFS support services. C.O.P.E. staff members have a history of working successfully in culturally diverse settings and collaborating with a variety of local agencies and community groups. All services are tailored to the specific needs of clients and are adaptable to meet a wide variety of needs. C.O.P.E. also strives to maintain a diverse staff. Over 30% of C.O.P.E.’s staff members are bi-lingual in Spanish and are Latino or Hispanic, 35% are African American, and 35% are other ethnicities. Most services are available in Spanish and English, Arabic, Farsi/Dari and other languages with translators. A fundamental cornerstone of C.O.P.E.’s success is our extensive networking within the community. We utilize this network to partner with other agencies to address the needs of clients of other cultures and languages. This further enriches our ability to meet the needs of a culturally diverse spectrum of community families.

Our nonprofit allows underrepresented communities to gain access to mental health services, and those who otherwise would not be able to afford such care. All our clinicians are trauma-informed and trained in trauma treatments.
Our clinicians are all trained in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. We incorporate empathy and care while working with clients who have experienced traumatic events, while standing alongside them in their journeys of healing. We help them find coping skills that will provide stability in the moments that stability is compromised, also ensuring the importance of safety. We provide this treatment in different languages, and can connect the treatment to aspects of clients’ cultures. Strength of the client is emphasized as they are the ones who are choosing to go on their trauma treatment journey.

JLW Consulting | Building Resilient Schools
N/A
I'm a school-based trauma educator who partners with County Offices of Ed, Districts or individual sites to support the implementation of restorative, trauma aware responses to students, staff, and parents. I support school communities in building trust and safety where students can feel seen and valued.
I begin my work with each community by listening to needs and integrating existing supports. All partnerships involve customized support that provides a context for how exposure to trauma affects learning and behavior of students.
To that end, the trainings are divided across roughly four sessions that build sequentially. Depending on needs, content may include: defining and building awareness of trauma, understanding ACEs, the importance of self/co-regulation, restorative mindsets, creation of psychological safety, implementing community building circles, punishment v. consequences, and strategies to respond to dysregulated students that reset the nervous system.
All partnerships conclude with sustainability planning which may include: how to train new teachers, aligning discipline policies, and updating teacher recruitment language and websites.
I am open to creating a plan that works best for each school community, however shifting a community toward trauma responsive and restorative approaches requires an investment of time for the work to be successful and maintain integrity.

Since 2022 I have worked at helping people understand the effects of trauma on their communications and decision making process. The training focused on collaboration and Empowerment and Cultural Humility and Equity. Part of this was achieved through the recognition of individual norms and how those norms were formulated. The identification of past trauma and how it may express itself through our words and actions that may add trauma to each others lives is viewed from an empathetic lens governed by the principals that we all have different requirements to function at our optimal selves.

Personally, I believe in connectivity, and I increase my understanding of trauma through training, reading, and research. I practice meditation, and time outside to destress and teach children and young adults to do the same. I train departmental staff on the same concepts I practice and encourage them to take mental health days and not to answer emails on days off or when not at work. I practice being reliable both at home and work and do not overcommit.

Federally qualified community health center providing comprehensive primary care and urgent care for all ages in integrated behavioral health, medical and dental services
We routinely hire bilingual staff as majority of our community served are Spanish speaking and provide remote interpreter services in all our exam rooms and office spaces. We also conduct series of trainings including Fall 2021 All-Staff cultural humility training and a winter 2021 three-session series on staff wellness and trauma-informed practice around screening tools. We engage in trauma-informed practice grants including the Genentech Resilient Beginnings Network and ongoing parenting intervention program study associated with resiliency building utilizing ACEs and SDoH resources screening, navigation and linkage services for families with young children (toddlers). We provide opportunities for celebration and honoring of cultural events of our staff and community with displays in our waiting rooms and team rooms reflecting that.

Rainbow Community Center
N/A
Rainbow Community Center provides comprehensive support to the LGBTQIA+ community and their allies throughout Contra Costa County. Along our different programs and services are; clinical mental health therapy, social and support groups for youth, adults and seniors, HIV and STI testing, resources and other support, food deliveries, training and professional development for companies, schools and other entities, as well as support for youth experiencing houselessness.
RCC uses a trauma informed approach in all of our different programs and services, as well as incorporating those practices into our different events and community gatherings. Specifically, we ensure that staff are equipped to understand the impacts of trauma and how they might manifest in peoples behaviors, and how to de-escalate situation and mitigate rather than cause harm. We develop protocols to do so during events and in person contact out in the community. We practice an affirming, collaborative approach to all of our work, internally and externally, and are responsive and compassionate to concerns that are raised or issues that arise. We use a transparent, direct and kind approach to addressing conflict. We inform ourselves on an ongoing basis about how different individual intersections of identity including for example race, class, gender, sexual orientation and others, can cause differing examples of trauma that require different trauma informed approaches in order to empower those with marginalized experiences such as BIPOC LGBTQIA+ individuals.
