RfR Community Resilience Collaborative

The RfR Community Resilience Collaborative is part of the social network for the PACES Movement. A group of people who recognize the impact of a wide variety of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) in shaping adult behavior and health, and promote 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. 

The Pillars for Growing Our Initative


Summary: The goal is for every organization and individual in our community to become trauma informed, know about PACEs science, and to integrate policies and practices based on PACEs science, become healing-centered and build trauma responsive communities.


Summary: There’s an old adage: What gets measured, gets done. Data propels community resilience initiatives to solve its most intractable problems and helps communities sustain the efforts to integrate policies and practices based on PACEs science. 


Summary: Invite people and organizations across sectors to join our Community Resilience Collaborative and PACEs movement. Ask municipal leaders, constituents and government to provide official recognition. A sustained campaign over years will result in communities solving their most intractable problems! 


Summary: Encourage organizations and individuals to integrate trauma-informed/ resilience-building practices based on PACEs science, and encourage them to sign a letter of commitment. Develop and inform local policy. Create a Community Profile.


Summary: Share your PACES intitative story. Host events. It's a crucial part of sustainability!
