The Snohomish County Human Services Department is currently seeking proposals from qualified firms to provide consultation and training services to Department staff regarding transformation into a trauma-informed organization that consistently applies and promotes trauma-informed practices among staff working in teams as well as in relation to subcontractors and direct delivery of services to Snohomish County residents. The intention is to generate organizational change in policies, practices, and culture to support and sustain an environment that nurtures consistent trauma-informed and relationship-based practices across all divisions in the Department; improves employee satisfaction and commitment; increases the strength and consistent delivery of services to and by subcontractors; and ensures that strengths-based, person-centered supports are provided to staff and in the delivery of services directly to the residents of Snohomish County.
There are parallel initiatives within the Human Services Department, county government, and surrounding community around learning and advancing trauma-informed practices. One of the goals of this work is to initiate and expand the cross-fertilization with these entities.
The Request for Proposal instructions and documentation may be found through Snohomish County Purchasing. There is a Question & Answer period open through Thursday, July 25th, 2019 at 3:00 p.m local time. No questions or comments will be addressed after that time. Final proposals are due by 3:00 p.m. local time on Wednesday, August 7, 2019. All questions and proposals must be submitted through the Snohomish County Purchasing Department.
