Trauma Center of Delaware was recently awarded a $10,000 grant from Main Street America in partnership with American Express

Main Street America in partnership with American Express recently announced that Trauma Specialists of Delaware in Milton were recipients of a $10,000 grant through the Backing Small Business program. Later this year, the company will have an opportunity to apply for an additional $30,000 enhancement grant that will be awarded to 25 small businesses.

“We are truly thrilled to provide additional support to our country’s small business owners through the Backing Small Business grant program along with our partners at American Express,” Erin Barnes, President and CEO of Main Street America, said. “These grants are no small thing and will go far in helping our neighborhood and downtown entrepreneurs build capacity, continue to innovate and grow, and make meaningful contributions in their home communities.”

Trauma Specialists of Delaware was founded by Rachel Harrison, LCPC, NCC as Trauma Specialists of Maryland, LLC. Harrison realized that after working with clients for over 17 years, the root cause of many issues and symptoms were related to an individuals’ trauma.

“I spent many of my years training in different treatment models proven to be most effective at dealing with trauma,” Harrison said. “My vision was to develop a practice where all the practitioners were trained in specific trauma therapies and could work as a team to treat individuals most effectively.”

The approach taken by Trauma Specialists of Delaware is to address the big and small events that occur in an individual’s life and take specific interventions to heal those wounds. Traumatic events can cause flashbacks, panic attacks, anxiety, depression, difficulty in relationships as well as anger. Therapy is individualized based on each person’s needs.

The Backing Small Businesses program launched in 2021 and has provided over $9 million in grants to over 1,100 small business owners across the country. The grant was initially created to help small business owners recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Trauma Specialists of Delaware has offices located at 34011 Westcoats Road, Suite 1B in Lewes as well as 306 Union Street in Milton. They can be reached by calling 301-304-7108, option 2 or email [email protected].
