Together, we are resilient

We are creating a community that is dedicated to a future full of peace and prosperity

Research shows that our most pernicious health and social problems are caused by adversity and toxic stress in childhood.

The landmark Adverse Childhood Experience (ACE) study established that an accumulation of adversity and toxic stress during development is the most powerful determinant of the public health predictive of the 10 top causes of death in the U.S. and the likelihood of a host of educational, occupational, and social problems that plague our communities.


All Douglas County residents, organizations, and institutions are empowered trauma-informed champions promoting safe children, strong families, healthy neighborhoods, and resilient communities.

“Adverse Childhood Experiences are the single greatest unaddressed public health threat facing our nation today.”

Robert Block, former president of the American Academy of Pediatrics
