Kelly Hostetler, executive director of the local United Way, said the idea for the Children's Trauma Assessment Group started with Jim Henry, a former St. Joseph County Department of Human Services worker who has gone on to become a professor at Western Michigan University.

Hostetler said Henry was concerned about the delay between a child's experience with some type of trauma and an assessment by a mental health official to determine the severity of the child's trauma.
Henry, who still maintains close contact with officials in St. Joseph County, met in December with Probate Court Judge David Tomlinson and raised the idea of an assessment center in Centreville.
After Tomlinson met with Henry, Tomlinson turned to a few county officials and made a commitment to ensure St. Joseph County has an assessment center of its own.
