Endeavor Place in Amarillo, Texas incorporates the Trust-Based Relational Intervention® (TBRI) model of care to help these children overcome their original trauma, and help them to begin forming healthy attachments as they learn to trust again.
Prior to opening our home in 2017, local children were sent out of the area for treatment because the services they needed were not available in their own community. Being sent away from everything that was familiar in their lives only added to their trauma.
Now, not only are these children receiving the trauma-informed care they need in their own community, they are receiving their treatment while living in a comfortable, home-like environment that facilitates their healing. Residents are also given opportunities to develop and strengthen their faith, which expands their level of trust and brings them into a community of mutual support.
