Identification of residents in the community who have experienced Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) to provide positive social experiences that counteract the negative impact of ACEs and decrease the likelihood of poor adult health.
Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) refer to a list of experiences in the first 18 years of life that have been identified as potentially traumatic including: having household member(s) incarcerated, being physically, sexually, or emotionally abused, experiencing neglect, living with mental illness or a drug problem in the house, etc.
Without interventions and support, ACEs can be devastating on a person's quality of life. Studies have shown that positive social experiences, also defined as Counter-ACEs, can have a profound effect on the negative impact of ACEs.
Families and Communities Enhancing Stability (FACES) will provide services specific to the needs identified by ACEs.
