  • Building a trauma-informed network

    Columbia Pacific Coordinated Care Organization is invested in creating a network of trauma-informed care in Clatsop County. Community partners from six sectors are convening to create the architecture and develop strategies to implement programs to improve health and life outcomes for children, families and communities.

    Resilient Clatsop

    Senior Program Development Specialist Angel Escobedo has spent the past year meeting with providers and organizations to develop infrastructure for the network known as Resilient Clatsop County. The six sectors are education, child welfare, health care, criminal justice, business and the community.

    Escobedo’s role is to convene, facilitate and serve as the initial backbone of the network. Workshops focus on how to implement trauma-informed practices across all sectors. Currently about 20 organizations are involved in the Resilient Clatsop County strategic planning stages.

    “We are really in a good place,” Escobedo says. “I’ve spent a year talking to people and building relationships. We are building trust.”

    The plan is to launch and implement the network in the spring.

    Eventually, Escobedo will transition out and a steering committee will guide the network.

    The vision is to have a thriving community committed to building resilience in children, families and communities
