The funds will be put towards the Teen Trauma Program, which provides therapeutic counseling for adolescents ages 12-17. The program’s goal is to teach teens effective coping skills to overcome trauma and improve acting-out behaviors.
“The Teen Trauma program supports many struggling young people in our community” commented Diane Connell, Director of Development of CAC. “This grant will enable us to expand the program further.”
