Creating Trauma-Informed Space

June 9th was our annual Moran Center Clean Up Day. Fresh out of Trauma Workshops, we approached our Clean Up Day with an eye toward creating spaces in which our clients could feel safe. We freshened up our conference room, front office, and social work offices with a calming, warm paint color. We rearranged furniture to promote a sense of personal safety and privacy. We de-cluttered our work spaces to ensure a sense of order and respect. 

Of course, like all good things, we could not have accomplished all of this on our own. We were joined by a dedicated team of volunteers from Accuity. For the past three years, Accuity has supported our mission by providing clean-up volunteers, office furniture, graphic design services and IT support. We are lucky to have them as our friends and neighbors.
