We say “Kids are our future” and “We need to do more,” but a significant percentage of our children live in homes with violence, go to bed hungry or struggle in school due to mental health issues. Childhood adversity has lifelong implications for a person’s future health, academic and career success, which costs society billions of dollars each year!

about why our kids are worth investing in TODAY! Countering childhood adversity pays dividends for the larger community and improves the trajectory of kids’ lives.
