CAPE, Inc.’s Trauma Informed Care program recognizes the profound impact of trauma on young children.  That’s why we provide a safe and nurturing environment that promotes resilience and healing.

We believe that every child deserves a safe space to learn, thrive, and heal. That’s why our team is here to ensure that all children are well—physically, emotionally, and mentally

Our Services

Young children can benefit greatly from specialized support to help them to develop positive relationships, express their thoughts and feelings appropriately, and manage the ups and downs of daily life.

CAPE, Inc. is devoted to ensuring that each child’s individual needs are met and that his or her unique gifts and talents are developed. Serving children with a range of mental health needs is an integral part of our commitment to families.

Our Trauma-Informed Approach

A trauma-informed approach integrates awareness about trauma into all aspects of the system. It follows the 4R’s:

  • Realize the widespread impact of trauma and pathways to recovery.
  • Recognize trauma signs and symptoms.
  • Respond by incorporating trauma awareness into program practices.
  • Resist re-traumatization by minimizing unnecessary triggers.

Our Mental Health Resources

Mental Health Consultation

All CAPE Head Start classrooms have the support of a Mental Health Consultant who works with teachers, families, and children on issues related to social and emotional development. You can find information about the Mental Health Consultant in CAPE classrooms or by speaking with your child’s teacher.
