Safe & Secure TN evolved as an extension of the long history of community training offered by the Memphis Family Connection Center (MFCC). Both MFCC and Safe & Secure TN are programs of Empowered to Connect (ETC). ETC is a dynamic network of programs aimed at increasing access to holistic care for individuals, families, and communities.
As an ambassador organization of Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development (KPICD) Safe and Secure TN, offers multi-disciplinary training to caregivers and professionals supporting children who have experienced adversity, trauma, and loss. The research-based and empirically validated intervention, Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI®), is utilized to guide our training and consulting services. Safe & Secure TN collaborates with organizations and stakeholders across communities to build capacity for trauma-informed care across systems.
Safe & Secure TN is made possible through the support and grant funding of Show Hope, a nationally recognized advocate for children and families, founded by Mary Beth and Steven Curtis Chapman and based in Franklin,Tennessee.
In our individual and joint efforts to reduce the impact of adverse childhood experiences and trauma in Tennessee, we are grateful for our partners Show Hope and the KPICD.
