C3 Project

What is C3?

C3 is a project focused on cultivating community capacity in the Arkansas Deaf community to:

  • Understand trauma and its impact
  • Create more trauma-aware spaces
  • Obtain resources to help heal from trauma

What will we do?

    1. Develop 3 training modules and 3 brief videos on these 3 topic areas:
      • Understanding trauma and its impact
      • Creating more trauma-informed spaces
      • Healing from trauma
    2. Deliver training to members of the Deaf community and those who work closely with the Deaf community.
    3. Work with those who provide victim services to help them improve services to the Deaf Community.
