An ability to recover from or adjust easily to adversity or change.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau’s National Survey of Children’s Health, more than 1 in 4 children have been exposed to at least one adverse event in their lives. In Georgia, 18% of children have experienced at least one adverse event and 10% have experienced two or more. We know that adverse experiences impact all areas of a child’s life and affect their future if not addressed early on. In order to build more resilient communities and help our neighbors overcome these hardships, we must work together to create an environment where all members of the community can thrive.
Our mission is to build resilient communities within Gwinnett by creating a shared understanding of adversity and resilience, promoting trauma-informed practices, and advocating for policy and system change. It will take partners in all sectors working together to bring the change needed, so we are creating opportunities to help members of the community learn how to spot different types of adversity and giving interested parties a seat at the table so we can build a resilient Gwinnett with systems and practices in place that promote child and adult well-being.
Adversity can’t be eliminated overnight, but when we work together, we can begin reducing childhood adversity by promoting resiliency and healing. Our goal is to raise awareness about the adversities children and their families are facing, and how we can help them overcome hardships to find stability and be able to thrive. We proudly partner with Resilient Georgia to execute a proven, evidence-based model that delivers. Help us move the needle and become a champion for trauma-informed practices in our community.
