Chester Street Foundation is committed to shining a light on childhood trauma so that children receive the treatment they deserve.
Chester Street Foundation (CSF) was established to shine a light on the invisible wounds of childhood trauma so that children receive the treatment they deserve. Traumatic experiences can remain wired in the body and brain; and when triggered, they may cause both children and adults alike to relive the panic and terror over again, often leaving wounds that can last a lifetime without intervention. We believe that education is a critical component to helping traumatized children heal and have designed our educational TraumaTALKS program for the community at large and professionals who are on the frontlines, including mental health professionals, educators, and organizations working with children. One of a few organizations in Texas leveraging lived experience along with evidence-based research through its educational platform, Chester Street Foundation is committed to raising awareness of and providing training about childhood trauma, so that the adults that surround these children will be able to better help them on their road to recovery.
