This slide presentation presents information on a trauma-informed system of care implemented in Maine. The Penquis Regional Linking Project (PRLP) aims to utilize a trauma-informed system of care approach in serving children and families affected by substance abuse, increase well-being, improve permanency, and enhance the safety of children ages 0-5 and their families, and provide services in Penobscot and Piscataquis counties of Maine to these families who have been affected by substance abuse. Key PRLP partners are identified, and key components of the Sanctuary Model are described. Additional information is provided on the participatory action research project used to evaluate the program, trauma theory, and tools for implementing the Sanctuary Model.
