TRAUMA INFORMED COMMUNITY ALLIANCE
planting the seed
The seed was planted when the Crossville Rotary Clubs learned about Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and the economic, health, and well-being impact of ACEs on people and communities in Tennessee and Cumberland County.
As the idea began to grow, it was nourished by the two ACEs Rotary Grant in 2020-2021. The primary goal of the grant was to create a sustainable, multidisciplinary, collaborative framework to build a trauma informed and resilient community.
In May 2021, the Trauma-Informed Community Alliance (T.I.C.A) was formed consisting of a network of partners from multiple sectors dedicated to developing a community-wide trauma-informed system of care. In 2022, TICA recieved their 501c3 and were designated as nonprofit.
