ECTIC WAS FORMED TO ENHANCE RESILIENCY AND REDUCE THE IMPACT OF TRAUMA IN ERIE COUNTY.
The Coalition is comprised of concerned citizens as well as individuals representing local faith-based organizations, service providers, businesses, schools, person-serving systems, and community centers.
Coalition members operate based on the belief that trauma has a profound impact on the individual and community and that a trauma-informed community can help rebuild the foundation of its residents to overcome the past, thrive in the present, and face the uncertain future with renewed confidence.
ECTIC operates five workgroups dedicated to conducting local trauma-informed:
prevention and awareness
resource and support dissemination
diverse population engagement
Community members are welcome to attend twice yearly coalition briefings, serve on a workgroup, as well as to request resources and/or professional development opportunities for their places of work or civic engagement.

COALITION Executive Committee
ECTIC was co-founded and is co-led by Family Services of NWPA and the Achievement Center.
The Booker T. Washington Center, Martin Luther King Center and Sarah A. Reed Children's Center helped launch ECTIC and were among the original Steering Committee Organizations.
