Adverse Childhood Experiences

Our program understands the importance of using the best available evidence to prevent child abuse and neglect and further harm of individuals from other forms of injuries and violence. To assist our program with the best available evidence, our program relies on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention technical package: Preventing Child Abuse and Neglect: A Technical Package for Policy, Norm, and Programmatic Activities. as its guide. We focus on individuals, families, and relationships to broader community and societal change.
