ERIE COALITION FOR A TRAUMA INFORMED COMMUNITY

ECTIC

We believe that trauma has a profound impact on the individual and community.

We believe that a Trauma-Informed Community can help build the foundation for its residents to overcome the past, thrive in the present, and face the uncertain future with renewed confidence.

PURPOSE

Our Mission Statement

We exist to create a bridge to healing by building a supportive, connected community dedicated to enhancing resiliency and reducing the impact of trauma.

OUR VISION

Erie will be a trauma informed and responsive community committed to creating a culture of hope and safety.
