Every child is precious.
Hope Street equips ALL who touch the lives of children with what they need, so they can give children what they need.
Every child should feel precious, loved & safe.
Hope Street sees the need to address unresolved trauma and Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and meets the need through the delivery of Trust Based Relational Intervention® (TBRI®) to anyone who touches the life of a child.

But There is HOPE.
What do we do?
TBRI® is a care model designed to help meet relational and developmental needs of children and youth impacted by unresolved trauma. Developed by Drs. Karyn Purvis and David Cross at the Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development at TCU, TBRI considers the whole child—brain, biology, behavior, body, and beliefs. TBRI® provides parents, caregivers, teachers and service providers with insight and practical tools to help children in their care reach their highest potential.
Connection and authentic relationships are at the core of TBRI®.
Connection builds trust, and trust builds healthy relationships.
Connecting Principles: Create connections that disarm fear, gain trust, and enhance learning.
Empowering Principles: Strengthen learning and regulation by meeting a child’s physical and environmental needs.
Correcting Principles:Shape beliefs and behaviors effectively, so children feel safe, protected, and empowered.
The TBRI® approach to addressing early trauma is vitally important to the healthy functioning of that child. Children who have experienced trauma (that remains unresolved) need parents, caregivers, teachers, and service providers who see the child’s unique needs and are equipped to meet those needs.
Hope Street is here to address these effects of early adversity and relational trauma through the Connecting, Empowering, and Correcting Principles of TBRI®.
