WELCOME to Growing Resilient Communities
3rd Annual Gathering of Collaboratives Addressing ACEs
Gathering Recordings & Handouts
Welcome! On this website you will find links to recordings and handouts from the Growing Resilient Communities: The 3rd Annual Gathering of Collaboratives Addressing ACEs
This event was offered to develop and implement community-wide approaches to Building Self-Healing Communities. Communities all over Minnesota are engaging their members and local creativity to heal, build resilience, and reduce the impact of ACEs – both Adverse Childhood Experiences and Adverse Community Environments. These efforts are needed now more than ever in the face of pandemic and uprising. This event provided an opportunity for partners across MN communities to share their collective wisdom to address the questions and challenges we are facing today, from the impacts of physical distancing to the pre-existing inequities that cannot be ignored, and more!
This event and resources were brought to you by the Minnesota Department of Human Services & Minnesota Communities Caring for Children, with additional support from the Center for Prevention at Blue Cross and BlueShield of Minnesota
