About Abbott House


Trauma-informed care is an approach that seeks to understand the whole of an individual and shifts the focus from "What is wrong with you?" to "What happened to you?"
The spirit and passion of those that serve

Abbott House is a trauma-informed care agency. This means that we use evidence-based models to recognize the impact of trauma on those in care and use that knowledge to help them heal and recover. We understand that trauma affects not only children, families, and adults who receive our services, but also our staff, volunteers, and foster parents who provide the services.

Many people who have experienced trauma may feel ashamed, guilty, angry, or hopeless. They may blame themselves for things that have happened in their lives. Trauma-informed care challenges these negative beliefs and helps them understand they are not alone, and they are not defined by their trauma.

By adopting trauma-informed practices across our agency, we aim to improve the quality of our services and the outcomes for our clients.

The essence of our organization exists in our human spirit – the spirit and passion of those that serve and the spirit and determination of those who accept our services. We are dedicated to raising awareness of our cause and serving those in need.
