A Place to Feel Safe: ForKids, CHKD Trauma-Informed Architecture

Reporting by Anthony Sabella of WTKR News 3

When ForKids moved to Chesapeake two years ago, Thaler McCormick, ForKids CEO, who has a degree in architecture, worked closely with the designers to make sure the new space fit the needs of the people coming in.

“Many of the families we serve have had long, traumatic histories so we wanted this to be a place where they felt safe and where they felt like there was hope alive," she told News 3.
