About Us

Our Mission

We aim to inspire, support and sustain a movement of communities that can address the root causes of childhood trauma, foster equity and build community resilience.
The Center for Community Resilience provides technical assistance, facilitation, analysis and policy guidance to help institutions, organizations and collaboratives create measurable, lasting change. Our work is a solutions-based approach to preventing and mitigating Adverse Childhood Experiences in the context of Adverse Community Environments, what we call the Pair of ACEs. Teams across the country use the Building Community Resilience process and tools to help their communities not only ‘bounce back’ in the face of adversity, but bounce forward to improve outcomes for children and families.
