The first Collective was formed in our home community of Shelby County, TN.  In 2023, ten organizations joined the Shelby County Collective and committed to implementing Trust Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) in their organizations. These organizations sent over 30 staff to become TBRI® practitioners and engaged in coaching sessions with SSTN to help children in our community feel safe and secure.

“I enjoy the nurture groups in the collective. It gives us tangible material to bring back and recreate with our organizations. I enjoyed the flow of conversation and support that the collective offers.”
