Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) are traumatic experiences in childhood that include all forms of abuse, neglect, or household dysfunction. ACEs can have lifelong impacts on the health and well-being of an individual and their community. In Adams County, 15-20% of people reported a prevalence of 4 or more ACEs. This proposal outlines three effective evidence-based interventions focusing on building early childhood resilience, supporting positive parent-child interactions, and providing tools to community leaders that aim to decrease ACEs’ occurrence and impact and interrupt the transgenerational cycle of ACEs within Adams County.
