ANTI-BULLYING COLLABORATION: A 30 partner collaborative promoting a safe, civil, and respectful community by preventing bullying among children, youth, and adults and equipping teachers to respond.
FAMILY SAFETY CENTER: A Parent Child Center of Tulsa child therapist is embedded at the Family Safety Center (Tulsa’s family justice center) to provide in-the-moment assessment, support and referral for children whose families seeks assistance for protective orders in cases of domestic violence. Our therapist also offers vicarious trauma support to staff employed by other agencies co-located at the Family Safety Center.
SAFE BABIES COURT TEAM: The Safe Babies Court Team is a systems change initiative, spearheaded locally by ZERO TO THREE, a national nonprofit committed to promoting the health and development of infants and toddlers along with The Parent Child Center of Tulsa. It is focused on improving how the courts, child welfare agencies, and related child-serving organizations work together, share information, and expedite services for young children in state custody. In doing so, it protects babies from further harm, addresses the trauma they’ve already experienced, partners with parents to make needed changes, and tackles issues in the child welfare system that prevent families from succeeding. The Safe Babies Court Team places a high priority on supporting birth parents toward reunification with their young children. The team ensures babies and toddlers benefit from child-focused services to address medical problems and developmental delays, quality early learning experiences, and frequent family time.
