Luzerne-Wyoming Counties System of Care Initiative
System of Care is also committed to creating a trauma informed community. System of Care is an active partner in the NEPA Trauma Alliance, a regional trauma coalition. This coalition of local community stakeholders will advance our current efforts to the entire region and develop strategies to educate, implement and enhance trauma competency across the region. For more information on this initiative or to learn how to join, please contact the Project Director, Joe Kloss at (570)408-1332 / email@example.com For more information click here: NEPA Trauma Alliance | Luzerne County, PA
System of Care is currently contracting with Lakeside Global Institute to provide ongoing trauma trainings to the workforce, schools along with youth & families in the community. Concurrently, enhanced training is being provided to individuals to develop more trauma competent professionals with the goal of these individuals being able to provide trauma certified counseling as clinicians, promote trauma informed practices in their respective agency, and/or become local trauma trainers for sustainability beyond the System of Care Grant. Please contact the Project Director, Joe Kloss at (570)408-1332 / firstname.lastname@example.org to request a training or learn about current scheduled trainings. Trainings are primarily being conducted virtually, however, in person trainings can be requested where appropriate.
System of Care is working collaboratively with all Luzerne County School Districts, all Luzerne County law enforcement entities and the Luzerne County Human Services Division on the Handle With Care Initiative. This Initiative promotes safe and supportive homes, schools and communities that protect children, and help traumatized children heal and thrive.
