Trauma Support Services began in 2007 with the realization that trauma victims were being under-served.
While some short-term crisis and response programs existed for crime victims throughout the DFW Metroplex, it was difficult to locate therapists who might treat more complex, long-term therapy, especially if the victim was without insurance or the ability to pay for services.
Trauma Support Services knew we could help!
Trauma Support Services is unique in that we:
go beyond short-term crisis intervention and referral services (which are more commonly available) to address the longer-term therapeutic needs of adults, children, and families resulting from a traumatic event;
use only licensed therapists with trauma therapy experience (we do not use student interns);
arrange for volunteer therapists to take one client/family at a time on a pro bono basis (which allows Trauma Support Services to keep fees as low as possible or even free);
maintain client contact for as long as it takes for clients to return to a happier, more productive life;
accept Crime Victims Compensation for those who qualify.
The mission of Trauma Support Services of North Texas is to provide personalized, compassionate care for those affected by trauma. TSSNT will also provide education and training for professionals, volunteers, interns and the general public who come in contact with trauma survivors and their families.
Our vision is to be the trusted source of quality care and education.
