Why: The United Way - Cape Fear is investing in our region by underwriting data gathering and analysis of each collaborative's work, and allowing members of the collaborative to attend regularly-scheduled national learning opportunities with leading positive and adverse childhood experiences (PACES) initiatives and experts across the country via the PACEs Connection Cooperative of Communities.

This investment and the resulting data will enable each initiative to track resiliency work with the PACEs Connection Community Resiliency Tracker's Milestones Survey.

Using this data community leaders can spot trends, see where they are able to affect the most positive change, see how their work may affect work in adjacent counties, see how other resiliency initiatives in the Cape Fear Area (Columbus, Pender, Brunswick and New Hanover) are doing in their work.

What happens as the result of this investment?

Data tracking will help community members see how far their initiatives have come in improving aspects of the health and wellbeing of their communities, spot gaps, connect community members who can help each other, and, in the second part of the data gathering and analysis likely to be started the Fall, see the impact of the work in several key sectors of their choosing, such as education, juvenile justice, health care, community of faith involvement, etc. Ultimately the data can be used to see if funds are being saved by doing the work to prevent and heal trauma; build resiliency in the respective communities.

Are you involved or would you like to become involved?

If you are the designated resiliency task force representative from your organization, you will be receiving the 14-question survey within the next few weeks.  Your completing and returning the survey, and then PACEs Connection aggregating and posting the data on each initiative’s website, will provide benchmarks and outcomes data on the work to make these four counties in the Cape Fear the healthiest, most resilient communities possible.

Survey participants are designated signers of the "Memorandum of Understanding" or "Beliefs Statement" document for their respective initiative, which indicates support for the initiative and the work. If you don't know whether or not your organization will be included in the survey, please contact the leader(s) of your community's resiliency initiative:

Resilient Columbus: Selena Rowell -; Jai Robinson

Resilient Brunswick: Lauren Clark -; Morgan King -

Pender County Resiliency Task Force: Amy Read -
