WHY BE TRAUMA INFORMED?

Trauma is a multifaceted term covering a broad range of distressing events that can cause long lasting emotional and physical effects. It is important to understand the risk factors and symptoms of trauma when serving an at-risk population to better understand how to connect with individuals who may be hesitant about relationships as a result of past adverse experiences.


Topeka Rescue Mission is invested in deepening our knowledge of trauma to help bring hope and healing to individuals who are at their lowest. Our heart is to not only address the physical needs of an individual, but through the power of the Holy Spirit help restore trust-based relationships with each individual that the Lord allows us to minister to through the Topeka Rescue Mission.
