Awards to Delaware individuals, organizations, and educational institutions for outstanding trauma-informed care. Awards are given to the following categories of recipients: healthcare providers, family caregivers, educational institutions, first responders, community organizations, and government organizations.

The award categories include:

  • Government – Agency, division, team, workgroup, or individuals of State of Delaware, county, or municipal governmental agencies/organizations.
  • Community Organizations – Non-profit or for-profit organizations providing support services to individuals, families, and communities. For example, this category includes faith-based organizations, organizations serving individuals with disabilities, homeless services, veteran services, elderly, and crisis intervention.
  • First Responders – Organizations such as fire, law enforcement, Victim Services and EMT.
  • Education (P-20) – Universities, colleges, school districts, schools, early childhood centers, daycare centers, and other educational institutions.
  • Family/Caregiver – A family member or family caregiver demonstrating exceptional trauma-informed care during an especially difficult year.
  • Health Care – Includes agencies, providers, hospitals, or individuals providing trauma-informed care to service recipients.
  • Other – Organizations that may not fit within the categories above.

Trauma-informed care criteria should be in a manner consistent with the Delaware Developmental Framework for Trauma-Informed Care (see Supporting Documents, below). Trauma-informed care includes:

  • Creating respectful, sensitive, and culturally competent environments;
  • Implementing evidence-based trauma-informed principles and practices that address the effects associated with trauma;
  • Developing a common language and framework for dialogue and discussion to enhance communication and progress along the continuum of trauma-informed care; and
  • Increasing the effectiveness and responsiveness of all services and assistance provided to Delawareans, especially children and adults who have experienced traumatic circumstances.
