tip sheet

Young people seeking services through runaway and homeless youth programs across the country most likely have experienced many different types of trauma. These experiences can range from abuse and neglect, sexual trauma, witnessing violence in the home or neighborhood or the loss of a loved one. It is important that those providing day-to-day support and care become more trauma informed and understand the impact trauma has on the behavior, development and relationships of the youth we serve.
