Clallam Resilience Project

The Clallam Resilience Project is a consortium of over 50 organizations working together to foster resiliency for our residents, organizations, community, and systems. Using research from the NEAR* sciences, we provide opportunities to connect, learn, and educate on how and why to apply trauma sensitive care county wide.

*NEAR sciences are: Neuroscience, Epigenetics, Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), and Resiliency

Who We Are


To foster a resilient Clallam County: its residents, organizations, community and systems.

 The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration (SAMHSA) offers the Four R’s as a helpful way to think about trauma informed care:

“A program, organization, or system that is trauma-informed
realizes the widespread impact of trauma and understands potential paths for recovery;
recognizes the signs and symptoms of trauma in clients, families, staff, and others involved with the system;
and responds by fully integrating knowledge about trauma into policies, procedures, and practices, and seeks to actively resist re-traumatization.”
