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.
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.
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.
