Building Resilient Communities
We believe our strength is in our ability to engage our community members in building caring connections by improving resiliency, preventing childhood trauma & understanding how our interactions with others can support those who have experienced trauma through education.
Vashti is seeking community partners and youth serving organizations in eight southwest Georgia counties that would benefit from Youth Mental Health & Trauma Informed Care Trainings.
