How your donations are used
helps continue the mission of PACEs Connection to prevent adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), encourage positive childhood experiences (PCEs), heal trauma, and build resilience. We are the human and digital catalyst that unites people, organizations, systems and communities worldwide. We connect and support the work of 55,000 dedicated members and over 400 communities that have ACEs initiatives.
PACEs Connection supports local PACEs initiatives in neighborhoods, cities, counties, states, and nations. We provide initiatives with a free community site on PACEs Connection, guidelines on how to launch and grow local PACEs initiatives, and powerful online tools that help initiatives measure their progress.
We also have interest-based communities, such as PACEs in Education and Parenting with PACEs. Our Community Managers’ site helps managers of more than 400 geographic-based communities share ideas about how best to leverage their community’s ideas, successes and challenges by using PACEs science to solve our most intractable problems.
For established initiatives, we offer access to more advanced tools, guidelines and services in the PACEs Connection Cooperative of Communities. All of you know that we’re in this for the long haul. As those of you who have been involved in spreading the word about PACEs science and in integrating practices and policies based on PACEs science, the transition to healing-centered cultures is not a three- or four-year endeavor. Depending on the community, it’s at least a 20-year.
