C.O.P.E. FAMILY SUPPORT CENTER
cathy.botello@copefamilysupport.org
C.O.P.E Family Support Center
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
