The Community Action of Greater Indianapolis – WE CANN B.U.I.L.D Trauma & Resilience Learning Collaborative is an 8-month (May-December), in depth training and consultation process that will allow organizations to apply trauma informed care and community building skills to create effective change through organizational policies, procedures, and practices.


Participating in the WE CANN B.U.I.L.D Trauma & Resilience Learning Collaborative will allow teams to engage in a reflective, dynamic, and transformative change process. Adopting trauma informed policies, procedures and practices, provides a conceptual framework that will allow organizations to achieve their program and/or organizational objectives more successfully.




Organizations will be working directly with Karen Simms, Learning Collaborative Creator, WE CANN B.U.I.L.D Facilitator, and Consultant, to co-create more trauma informed, culturally responsive, and transformative environments that are healing and empowering for both staff & the people that they serve.
