The Connected Community at The Maine Children’s Home is an initiative focused on helping kids from hard places, such as abuse, neglect or trauma, through a variety of efforts, including family counseling, support groups, family and community education, outreach and much more. The goal of The Connected Community is to support children, parents, caregivers (of all kinds), and community providers to deepen connections with kiddos, any child truly; however especially those who have experienced trauma or come from a “hard place.” We have compiled a list of resources to check out on Trust-Based Relational Intervention and other techniques we use at The Connected Community.
