because… our children matter We invite you to the Geminus Community Partners Conference to learn more about Trauma Informed Care. Trauma Informed Care is a fresh approach to dealing with issues that have plagued families for years. One important thing that we hope you take away from this conference is that we all play an important role in trauma informed care. This starts with the receptionist at the front desk, to the social worker assessing the case.
