“As one of the Lead Child Development Specialists at Hope Center, I learned how to work with kids of all ages ranging from 6 months to 8 years old. With help from the supportive and strong people that make up the children’s team, I grew my ability to respond to and help young people in trauma-informed ways that encourages independence, trust, and understanding.
