Trauma Informed Oregon (TIO) is a statewide collaborative aimed at preventing and ameliorating the impact of adverse experiences on children, adults, and families. Trauma Informed Oregon works in partnership with service providers, individuals and communities with lived experience, and families to promote and sustain trauma informed policies and practices across multiple systems of care. TIO focuses its efforts in four areas including centralized resources and community building, training and education, implementation and accountability, and policy and investment.
One of our commitments this year is to restructure our Leadership team and to instead be a steering committee for the purpose of giving input and advice to TIO about what is needed in communities and identities represented by steering committee members. Our goal is to have representation from multiple systems, agencies, identities, and regions across the state.
Individuals who are living and working in Oregon, and are interested in applying for Trauma Informed Oregon’s steering committee, please complete an application. We encourage everyone to apply. We anticipate 15-20 members but this number is flexible as we strive for inclusion & representation. The selection process will be reviewed by the previous Leadership Committee, OTAC, TIO staff, and other advisors. All applicants will have their application added to our waitlist, and will be notified upon an opening.
The TIO Steering Committee provides:
- An opportunity to help shape the trauma informed care work in Oregon.
- An opportunity to connect and collaborate with others doing this work.
- An opportunity to give voice to the strengths and needs of your community/ies.
Please consider participating in this committee or forwarding the application to others. If you have questions, please contact us.
