Trauma-Competent City: Dayton

Updated: Feb 28


Trauma and it's life-long effects deteriorates souls and society.

Many leaders and frontline workers are not competent in recognizing and appropriately responding to people effected by trauma.

Thus, we misunderstand ourselves. For those we are closest to and hold most dear, we aren't Loving them as much as we'd like. And for those who are most suffering, we are not aiding them along their healing journey like we want to.


Dayton becomes the first "Trauma-Competent City".
