About Us

Resilient Communities

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.
