Peaceful Households is a 501(c)3, not-for-profit, community based organization dedicated to improving life outcomes through trauma informed care and the prevention of child maltreatment. Located in beautiful Colorado Springs, Colorado we serve Colorado and the Mountain West Region.
To improve the health, social-emotional and economic outcomes
for children and families by providing the foundation, leadership
and education to build and sustain a trauma responsive community.
The vision of Peaceful Households is to ensure a safe, nurturing and predictable environment for children and their families.
WHY we do it?
First and foremost we do it because of our children. Secondly, studies clearly indicate that in order to improve life outcomes for individuals we must look beyond traditional approaches and extend our reach to better understand and respond to a person’s life experiences. This involves creating awareness and solutions at a community, organization and individual level. Hence a trauma informed community.
WHAT do we do?
We provide cross-functional community leadership, consulting, education services, events, resources and implementation solutions for individuals, public and private organizations to build trauma informed awareness and cultures.
HOW do we do it?
We provide a variety of educational services, conferences and trauma based solutions designed to help organizations and communities build trauma informed cultures.
Our widely-held educational conferences ensure the community is exposed to the latest research, trends and experiences of renowned national, international and regional experts.
We use Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) education as the foundation for establishing trauma informed communities. From there we help organizations plan and implement sustainable trauma informed environments that support the needs of clientele, employees and individuals.
