Resilient Communities is working to increase community awareness of adverse childhood experiences and the long term health impacts that can follow. We are committed to the positive development of children and families, and specifically to the prevention of all forms of child abuse and neglect. Our approach to identifying and solving interrelated community problems includes improving our interpersonal connections (relationships); improving our view or mindset of shared responsibility; and improving the collective impact of our efforts.

I believe in helping to make our community better for every family. We all need to focus on increasing access to resources to help those most vulnerable.
Children are the future of Ottumwa and we need to do whatever it takes to help them succeed.
We need to get children off to a safe and healthy start in life and support their families so that together they grow and maximize their potential.
