Phase Two: Engaging Communities will run from May 2019 to September 2019. It will help build your organization’s design skill set using a human-centered and trauma-informed lens. Your organization will be better equipped to use this set of skills, tools, and processes to collect insights. The goal is to further understand the needs of families impacted by toxic stress and trauma; designing programs and services that includes the stated desires, needs of children and families, which can improve uptake and support well-being. At the end of Phase Two in October 2019, a report outlining community findings and insights will be shared.
