This project’s goal was to help Friendship House develop the operational capacity for providing trauma-informed counseling to youth struggling with adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), in hopes of preventing youth from adopting high-risk behaviors. Aune Associates Consulting provided an operational and market assessment, revenues and project projection, policy and procedures manual, necessary legal forms and paperwork, connection with third-party billing services, and training to implement the plan. Despite initial hiring delays, Friendship House is now successfully operating a fully functional and sustainable counseling program for children and families in South Billings.
