Head Start Program Aims For Trauma-Informed Care

(Wisconsin) When families apply with ADVOCAP to put their children in the Head Start program they are assessed for all of their needs. Hillary Guenther is the Director of Head Start and Family Development for ADVOCAP. She says with COVID-19 there is a lot of trauma for some families to deal with whether it involves job loss, substance abuse, domestic violence or other issues. She says that’s why they are teaching their staff about trauma-informed care. To find out more about ADVOCAP’s Head Start program call Lorri Bohn at (920) 922-7760 extension 3544.
