Join the #ChildrenCanThrive Campaign so all children grow up happy and healthy.

The #ChildrenCanThrive  campaign seeks to transform our response to the public health crisis of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and their long term effects.

Join the #ChildrenCanThrive Campaign so all children grow up happy and healthy.
Our mission in the fight against ACEs and toxic stress is three-fold: prevent, screen and heal.
Prevent
We are helping to prevent toxic stress
by raising national awareness among
those who have the power to
make a difference.
Screen
We screen all kids who walk through the Center's doors for Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and toxic stress.
Heal
We are a national leader in
developing the best ways to heal kids
experiencing toxic stress.
How childhood trauma affects health across a lifetime
"The science is clear, early adversity dramatically affects health across a lifetime...The single most important thing we need today is the courage to look this problem in the face and say this is real and this is all of us."
