Everyone experiences stress, but there is a point in which prolonged exposure to adversity can cross into trauma. Interpersonal violence, racism, systemic oppression, and/or persistent community neglect can all be experienced as traumatic and have severe and long-lasting negative effects. In this webinar, learn about the definition and prevalence of trauma, its impact on a person’s brain, body, and behavior, and effective approaches to address it. Staff in all roles and levels are welcome.

In this webinar, learn what trauma-informed service delivery actually “looks like.” Walk away with specific strategies for “what you can do” and “what you can say” when working with individuals who have experienced trauma.

FPWA has recently been receiving claims from members of the public emailing and calling our offices that individuals posing as FPWA agents have contacted them claiming that in order for the recipient to claim grant monies from FPWA they must first send the agent personal information, a cell phone number, gift card codes or money.
FPWA does not use social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc.), text messages or direct phone contact to solicit, review, or make awards. FPWA staff will not call or message you requesting money in order to be eligible for an award.
Further, FPWA does not make grants directly to individuals. FPWA works with its member agency partners and other reputable community-based organizations to direct support to families and individuals in our community.
If you or someone you know has been contacted by someone posing to be an “FPWA Agent” or staff person requesting money to release a grant, please do the following:
Cease communications with the individual contacting you claiming to be an “FPWA Agent” and do not provide any further personal information to them;
You or the affected individual should file a police report in the local jurisdiction of attempted fraud with the information you have available from them – a phone number, a Facebook messenger profile, etc. It is likely they have compromised a friend or family members Facebook account to make it seem like a qualified referral;
You or the affected individual should pass all information to the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) (www.ic3.gov); and,
You or the affected individual should file a complaint with the Federation Trade Commission online, or call toll-free 1-877-FTC-HELP (1-877-382-4357); TTY: 1-866-653-4261.
