Community Resilience

Our Community Resilience initiative raises awareness of the impact of trauma on health and life outcomes in order to address and prevent it.


We offer tools for building resilience and work to prevent trauma by increasing the prevalence of positive childhood experiences. This includes several state-wide and local efforts:

  • Lead a state-wide task force (CSTAR) focused on trauma-informed education, policy, and advocacy
  • Elevate mental and relational health support for residents
  • Build protective factors for children and families
  • Convene multi-sector partners with the State of Connecticut
