We are an open community group made up of individuals passionate about collaboration and sharing resources and who have a working knowledge about preventing trauma and promoting resiliency.
We seek to drive out shame and blame, and instead replace it with safety and support. In the words of one of our wise partners: "Hard hat not required - open arms and a warm heart go a long way to fostering resilience." Dr. Velandy Manohar, MD
ACEs Connection is an ever-growing social network, that connects those who are implementing trauma-informed and resilience-building practices based on ACEs science around the globe.
ACEs Connection supports local ACEs initiatives in neighborhoods, cities, counties, states and nations. We provide initiatives with a free community site on ACEs Connection, guidelines on how to launch and grow local ACEs initiatives, and powerful online tools that help local initiatives measure their progress. We also have interest-based communities, such as ACEs in Education, ACEs in Pediatrics, and Parenting with ACEs.
Our Community Managers site helps managers of more than 300 geographic-based communities connect with each other. They share ideas about how best to leverage their community’s ideas, initiatives, successes and challenges to accelerate the use of ACEs science.
