Supporting communities to accelerate the use of ACEs science…to solve our most intractable problems.
We are the human and digital catalyst that unites the people, organizations, systems and communities in the worldwide ACEs movement. We are its main information exchange and resource. And we are a support for hundreds of local, state and national ACEs initiatives.
The Social Network for the ACEs Movement.
ACEs Connection, an ever-growing social network, connects those who are implementing trauma-informed and resilience-building practices based on ACEs science. The network’s 40,000+ members share their best practices, while inspiring each other to grow the ACEs movement.
We Support Community ACEs Initiatives.
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 initiatives measure their progress. For established initiatives, we offer access to more advanced tools, guidelines and services in the ACEs Connection Cooperative of Communities. We also have interest-based communities, such as ACEs in Education and Parenting with ACEs. Our Community Managers site helps managers of more than 350 geographic-based communities share ideas about how best to leverage their community’s ideas, successes and challenges to make significant progress using ACEs science.
The Information Resource for the ACEs Movement.
ACEs Connection informs its members. We send out a Daily Digest and Weekly Roundup of the latest ACEs-science, trauma-informed and resilience-building news, research and reports. The Resources Center has ACE surveys (original and expanded), resilience surveys, ACEs science presentations to download, and much more. In Ask the Community, members help each other find what they’re looking for. We also publish a separate news site, ACEsTooHigh.com, for the general public.
ACEs Connection is a social network that recognizes the impact of a wide variety of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) in shaping adult behavior and health, and that promotes trauma-informed and resilience-building practices and policies in all families, organizations, systems and communities. We support communities to accelerate the science of adverse childhood experiences to solve our most intractable problems. We believe that we can create a resilient world where people thrive.
