Here at RC Central, we are most proud of RC’s sustainability within agencies. We believe trauma-informed culture change is hard. Sustaining it can be harder. Therefore, agencies have to keep working at it FOR YEARS.
We recently did some calculations. Here’s what we found:
- As of July 2014, 45 agencies/programs adopted RC. 42 of those 45 are still open.
- Of those 42 agencies, 32 agencies (76%) still use RC.
- Of those 32 agencies…
- 26 agencies have been using RC for 3 years or more (81%)
- 12 agencies have been using RC for 7 years or more (38%)
5 agencies using RC for 9 years or more (16%)
Many training programs come and go in the life of an agency. RC often stays and gets permanently woven into the fabric of the system.
