Join us for the JULY 2022 round of the Creating Resilient Communities webinar series!
We at PACEs Connection know that a deep understanding of the science of positive and adverse childhood experiences (PACEs) can help organizations and communities solve their most intractable problems. Early adopters have shown STUNNING results in schools, family practice clinics, opioid prevention programs, etc.
- In thousands of schools—including schools in Antioch, CA, Suisun City, CA, San Francisco, CA, Spokane, WA, San Diego, CA, and Walla Walla, WA—that integrated trauma-informed practices, suspensions, expulsions and drop-out rates have dropped or been eliminated, while grades and graduation rates increase.
- Safe Babies Courts show that one year after participating, 99% of the children suffer no further abuse because the entire family is helped…with housing, work, job training, transportation, counseling, etc.
- Batterer intervention programs that have integrated ACEs science reduce recidivism from 30–60% to just 1%. Families stay together and are economically stable.
- Plymouth County, MA — combines law enforcement, rehab centers, and hospitals in a joint cross-sector program that has resulted in a 26% drop in opioid deaths v. an 84% increase in deaths in surrounding counties.
You can do the same in your community by joining the PACEs Connection Creating Resilient Communities (CRC) Accelerator Program to create a resilient community in your own neighborhood, town or city! It’s free!
The 16-hour CRC accelerator program is for people who want to become active in their communities, as well as advocates who are just beginning to transform their communities and organizations by using PACEs and resilience frameworks.
The CRC accelerator series of virtual workshops covers PACEs science, community organizing, multi-sector collaboration, strategic planning, as well as other topics. Participants who complete all events in the series will receive a Certificate of Completion.
