Handle With Care Program

Handle With Care (HWC) is a school-community response to help ensure that children exposed to trauma in their home, school, or community receive appropriate support to help them achieve emotionally and academically. 

The "Handle With Care" Model: If a law enforcement officer encounters a child during a call, that child’s name and three words, HANDLE WITH CARE, are forwarded to the school/childcare agency before the school bell rings the next day. HWC assists in identifying children with the need for trauma-informed care between first responders, police departments, and school districts. For more information, please see the Handle With Care flyer.
