TFC leads the TiC movement with Arizona ACE (Adverse Childhood Experiences) Consortium, collaborating with GOYFF (Governor's Office of Youth, Faith and Family) and many other organizations in the community. Thus, the internship serves many sectors in the state by training community leaders, staff and volunteers with the various people groups. TFC has been training the faith community, schools, mental health organizations, substance use prevention coalitions, etc.
With the Monday Night Mindfulness program, TFC teaches mindfulness exercises as part of trauma informed care and directly engages with young children living in the area of high ACE scores and social disadvantages. 

Trauma Informed Care and Community Movement is an emerging national movement with exponential growth. This movement is birthed and grown out of ACE study and brain science development that asserts the imminent need of a safe and loving environment for the effective recovery of trauma and toxic stress survivors. There is a huge need in the community not only for the direct services toward victims and survivors but also for trainings and the community movement not to re-traumatize survivors, instead, support their healing and restoration. 

TFC founded Arizona Trauma Informed Faith Community (AZTIFC). Last two years, TFC has mobilized a statewide and local conference, over 100 trainings and presentations, 7 monthly regional meetings for the movement, and hundreds of active participants in the movement. This program and initiative advance rapidly each day, reaching survivors, helping professionals, community leaders and organizations.
