Virginia Trauma Informed Community Networks 

Trauma-Informed Virginia

Gov. Northam created Virginia’s Children’s Cabinet by executive order in 2018. Since then, nearly 30 Trauma-Informed Community Networks (VA TICNs) have been established throughout the state to build a more trauma-informed and resilient culture in Virginia.

VA Trauma-Informed Community Networks bring community members together to work with state partners to change practices, policies, and systems within their regions and at the state level.

SCAN is proud to facilitate the Loudoun County TICN and co-facilitate RAISE in Alexandria and the TICN of Greater Prince William.
