Increase Your Impact with Chosen

Trauma impacts a developing brain. Resulting behavioral, academic, and relational challenges need intervention for these children to grow into emotionally healthy adults. Without a deep understanding of how abuse, neglect, grief, and loss affect people, efforts to help this population will likely fall short. Our staff, trained and experienced in using best-in-class trauma education, is passionate about sharing this knowledge with anyone wanting to serve children and adults who have experienced trauma.
