  • Promote the development of local, state, and regional trauma-informed coalitions and provide guidance and materials on how to engage in policy development at the state and local levels, including state legislatures;

  • Provide a vehicle for the sharing of best practices and innovative programs for each coalition to replicate in ways that reflect community needs and preferences;

  • Serve as a repository of data collected from various sources demonstrating how trauma-informed programs save money and lives; and

  • Provide resources and referrals to entities seeking to start a local coalition, such as a compilation of different models that communities have used to create their coalition, and provide training and technical assistance to local coalitions in governance, marketing, networking, communications, and evaluation.
