What is South Coast Together?

A community collaborative focused on fostering resilience in Coos and Curry counties. Its goals are to engage community members as agents of change in preventing the accumulation of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and to build resilience in children, adolescents, and families.

How did WE begin?

This effort came from the desire to get to the root cause of poor population health outcomes in our community. Trainings about the ACEs Study & Trauma-informed care in the Rogue Valley & Curry County spurred requests from Advanced Health members, providers, local clinics, early learning partners, and schools.

What does SCT do?

SCT provides no-cost trainings and workshops to citizens and professionals regarding Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), the impact of adversity across the lifespan, self-regulation and resilience. It facilitates activities to engage members of the community in working together to address community challenges, including Family Cafes, film showings, and community conversations.

Future Goals:

  • Continue to engage and train diverse community members and groups

  • Host additional or regularly scheduled events including Zoom Summits, Family Cafes and film nights when allowed by health regulations.

  • Expand the South Coast Together Steering Committee

  • Train more ACE Presenters and Master Trainers

  • Continue to help foster greater understanding of and compassion for others
