Description: 
The Child and Adolescent Traumatic Stress Services Center of Southern Arizona (CATTS) is a collaboration of Jewish Family and Children's Service of Southern Arizona, Arizona's Children Association, the Pima County Attorney's Office/Victim Witness Program, and La Frontera Center. The center provides services to children and adolescents and their families in Tucson/Pima County, Arizona, who have been exposed to trauma including sexual or physical abuse, domestic violence, school and community violence, and natural disasters. With particular sensitivity to Latino and Native American cultures, CATTS provides culturally informed, evidence-based, socioecologically valid, developmentally appropriate services. CATTS also collaborates with and trains key community stakeholders such as child welfare agencies; law enforcement; schools; family resource and wellness centers; social/behavioral health agencies; and consumers including caregivers, children and adolescents, and their families. The center also works with children and families at Davis Monthan Air Force Base and Fort Huachuca.
