Our Mission

The purpose of Connect the brain is to share our knowledge, expertise & experience providing trauma informed practices.


I can say this with confidence after serving 7 years with Els - She is a visionary who will go to great lengths to help people succeed. She has an innate ability to share her dreams with others so well that she elicits their help. She has moved mountains for the the type of kids who have no one to speak for them.
