Building Resilience

Toxic stress caused by abuse and neglect can negatively affect behavior and health in children. These affects last through adulthood. Toxic stress contributes to diseases and shorter life expectancy. That’s why we are committed to building awareness. We support environments and partnerships that build resilience.

Toxic Stress Impact

When a child experiences adverse childhood experiences, they are always on alert and stressed. This affects health and behavior.

Through our work with KidsReadyNC, we offer screenings and discussions of the documentary “Resilience: The Biology of Stress & The Science of Hope.”

We work with community partners to provide professional development to build capacity among Randolph County’s early educators to support young children and families affected by toxic stress.

“Scientific research points to the presence of a stable, caring adult in a child’s life as the key to building the skills of resilience.”
