 “Social work takes on different roles in our trauma recovery program. Our team provides therapy and advocacy service to survivors of violent crimes. We help out in places like courtrooms, emergency rooms, police stations, and in our offices on the Lakeview campus. We also work with local universities to provide internship opportunities. We’ve even had students from two others states intern with us. We believe that by having social workers in our program and supporting future social workers, we can have a more trauma informed community.”
