The Healthy Start TA & Support Center (TASC) is pleased to host a Trauma-informed, Resilience-Oriented and Equitable Care Community of Practice (TIROE CoP). The goal of the TIROE CoP is to support Healthy Start grantees in adopting and implementing trauma-informed, resilience-oriented, and equitable principles and practices; in an effort to strengthen and enhance Healthy Start service delivery, improve client and staff engagement and retention, and advance equity among Healthy Start communities.

The TIROE CoP consist of 10 monthly virtual learning sessions from May 2021 to January 2022; individual team coaching calls; and monthly Implementation Team meetings. Participants are required to complete team assignments, which will be shared during the virtual learning sessions.

The TIROE CoP consists of 10 Healthy Start projects. Each project convenes an Implementation Team to support implementation of the TIROE initiative within its Healthy Start program. Each Implementation Team includes:

  • A Project Director or Manager
  • Two staff members (CAN Coordinator, Case Manager, Home Visitor, Community Health worker, Fatherhood Coordinator, etc.)
  • One to two Healthy Start program participants with lived experience
  • One person identified to collect, analyze, and disseminate data
